To dispose of Paint

  • Try your local community, church, or school theater first to see if they need it, or try giving it away on Craigslist, Freecycle, Nextdoor, or social media outlets.  
  • Use a paint solidifier, such as the ones featured HERE to quickly dry up your paint, then throw it away with your regular trash.  (DO NOT bring solidified paint to our events or recycling center!)
  • Fill with cat litter, shredded newspaper, or sand to solidify the paint and throw away with your regular trash.
  • ​For a fee, take it to Atlanta Paint Disposal, who will recycle it. Drop off locations are available in various locations around Atlanta.​
  • Take it to the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials ​in Atlanta, who will recycle it. Fees are as follows: first five 1-gallon cans free, each additional $2. First two 5-gallon buckets free, each additional $3. Check their website or call at 404-600-6386 for hours and more information.
