How do I dispose of paint cans?
The County holds a hazardous waste day two to three times a year. You can call the County Recycling Resource Center at 973-305-5738 to find the times and dates to bring these items in.

Also, if you open the paint cans and put kitty litter or speedy dry in them, and let them dry out, we will collect them from you on your garbage day. But they must be dried out and put into plastic bags for disposal. View our informational page on paint disposal.
