Latex Paint Disposal 

To protect the environment and reduce cost, the Chesterfield County Waste And Resource Recovery (WARR) division has developed a new latex paint disposal process, and your help is needed to make it work!

Latex paint is not hazardous and can be safely disposed of in the trash once it is solid. Please follow the instructions below to solidify your latex paint.

  1. Remove and discard the paint lid.
  2. Make sure the paint can is half full or less (if the can is more than half full, pour excess into another container, like an empty coffee can).
  3. Add kitty litter, mulch, sawdust or paint hardener to the latex paint can. Safely stir the mixture together and allow it to harden. If liquid remains, add more solid material to the latex paint can.
  4. Allow the paint to dry in a ventilated area. Once latex paint has hardened, discard in trash or bring to a convenience center for free disposal.

Oil-Based Paint Disposal

Oil-based paint is considered hazardous in liquid form and cannot be disposed of in the trash. Oil-based paint will be accepted at special events to be held at the convenience centers.

Events will be held periodically for Chesterfield County residents to dispose of up to 5 gallons of oil-based paint liquid per household at no charge. Event information will be included on the county calendar

Oil-Based Paint Disposal Event

The next oil-based paint disposal event will be Friday, Sep. 9, 2022, from 8-11 a.m. at both the Northern and Southern Area Convenience Centers. Residents may dispose of up to 5 gallons of oil-based paint liquid per household at no charge.
