In 2012, the California Paint Stewardship Program began giving residents and businesses more options to drop off their unwanted paint. PaintCare oversees this program. Visit their website at www.PaintCare.org for more information.
Household Hazardous Waste
Safe Needle Disposal
State law makes it illegal to dispose of sharps (hypodermic needles, pen needles, intravenous needles or lancets) in the trash, recycling or compost bins.
Purchase a sharps (needle) container to hold your used needles until you can properly dispose of them. Containers can be purchased at your local drugstore. Learn More or call (800) OILY Cat / (800) 645-9228
