There are a few ways to recycle your unused paint.

We will gladly take any unused paint off of your hands at a RECOLOR® collection site, our main headquarters or at participating drop-off sites. To find your nearest option, simply contact us by email or by phone. If you want to recycle more than 25 gallons of unused paint, or need a pick up from your home or business, give us a call for an estimate at 1-833-RECOLOR (732-6567).
