Paint Disposal – Los Angeles

Because paint can be a toxic material, it is important to recycle what we can. Fortunately, there are local organizations in Los Angeles that will accept used latex paint to dispose of safely. Not only can you recycle your old paint in this way, but you can also purchase recycled and eco-friendly paint at various retail stores.
