Paint Disposal – New York City

Because paint can be a toxic material, it is important to recycle what we can. Fortunately, there are many local charitable organizations that will accept paint donations to use for projects such as improving public schools, community centers or low-income homes. Not only can you recycle your old paint, but you can also purchase recycled and eco-friendly paint at various retail stores.
