How to safely dispose of paint and paint cans

Take paint and paint cans to a household hazardous waste drop-off location for free:

  • Designated fire hall

  • If you bring with other garbage, charges will apply.

How do I prepare paint and paint cans?

  • Liquid paint must be sealed in the original can or another spill-proof container with the contents clearly labelled.
  • We accept all paint cans including dried out paint and empty cans.
  • We accept up to 20 litres of household chemicals per week.
  • Never flush chemicals down your toilet, sink or drain as they harm the environment and may damage the pipes in your home.
