Recycle Paint


SCRRRA conducts 8-9 Regional Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events within Southeastern Connecticut region.  Held spring, summer and fall, any resident can bring paints and other materials to any HHW event (see event schedule).  All paints and stains, including latex paint, are accepted at the regional HHW collection events.

There is a future option for local transfer stations to be able to accept households with paints and stains.  Check back here for updates.

Some retail paint stores and hardware stores also accept paints and stains from the public.  Participating retailers are located on the website. Be sure to contact the retailer directly to check that they accept old paint and if there are limits on how much a household can bring in at one time.
