PaintCare is giving away leftover paint in good condition to households and businesses as part of California’s statewide paint stewardship program. PaintCare collects leftover paint at drop-off sites across California for reuse and recycling. Giving away paint for reuse is a cost effective, efficient method of managing leftover paint. Reuse and recycling help divert leftover paint from landfills and the environment.

Attendees can browse partially filled containers of a variety of products including latex- and oil-based paints, primers, and stains. Color options and volumes are not guaranteed, and paint is given away on a first come, first served basis. Attendees will be limited to taking less than 25 gallons of free paint.
