Paint Disposal Instructions


GreenSheen accepts house paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings (e.g., shellac and varnish) but we do not accept aerosols (spray cans), solvents, and products intended for industrial or non-architectural use.

GREENSHEEN PAINT RECYCLING DOES NOT ACCEPT OIL BASED PAINT or aerosols (spray cans), solvents, sealers and products intended for industrial or non architectural use. Paint must be in its original container, and the container must have a label and secure lid. We cannot accept open or leaking cans. We reserve the right to refuse anything other than latex paint in reusable condition, in its original container with a readable label.

Use of Paint Recycling Drop-Off Site by Businesses

GreenSheen will provide a recycling option for painting contractors at no cost. Contractors that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month will be able to use our drop-off recycling location for both water and oil-based products with some restrictions on quantities per month. Businesses with at least 330 gallons of post-consumer paint may qualify to have their paint picked up at no additional cost.
