California has an extended producer responsibility law for paint recycling – Click here for more info on the PaintCare program.
Architectural paints, deck coatings, floor paints, primers, sealers, stains, shellacs, lacquers, varnishes, waterproofing sealers & repellents, pool paints, metal coatings, rust preventatives and field & lawn paints are all covered by the new program. Currently, Kelly-Moore Paints, Devine Paint Center, Orchard Supply Hardware and the Paint Works are the local PaintCare at-store drop off sites. Paint is also accepted at HHW facilities at the Devlin Road Recycling & Transfer Facility, Clover Flat Landfill and Yountville Corp Yard.
Paint is composed of resins, solvents, pigments, and other toxic ingredients. It is illegal to put paint and other paint-related liquids in the trash. Take unwanted paint to one of these Napa County collection locations – some sites also accept other materials as well:

Products should be in their original containers with original labels. 5 gallon containers maximum and a maximum of 20 gallons per trip (unless otherwise noted). Please call ahead to ensure the site has enough storage space to accommodate your paint. If you have large volumes of paint, PaintCare has pick-up options.
Solidified latex paint may be dropped off at one of the above sites or disposed in the regular trash. Empty and dry paint cans and buckets should be recycled in your curbside recycling cart.
