Got Paint? Recycle it for free!
It may be no secret that paint cans fly off the shelves during the summertime for all the DIY home projects, but now that summer is ending, it's important to recycle leftover paint.
Luckily, Clark County and Waste Connections work together to provide residents with FREE paint recycling at transfer stations and select retail stores throughout the county. Follow these common-sense rules to recycle paint through this program:
This service is for Clark County residents only
No leaking or rusted containers
The paint must be liquid: dry latex paint can be thrown away in the garbage
Retail stores only accept paint in their original, undamaged containers
Paint that is not in its original container must go to the transfer station during Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection hours (e.g. paint in a mason jar)
Do not bring non-paint HHW to the retail stores - take non-paint items to the transfer station during HHW collection hours
Prevent spills by fully containing and securing paint containers before transporting
The maximum is 10 gallons per person each week
Paint ONLY - please do not bring non-paint items
