Large Volume Pickup Service

As a public health precaution due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), PaintCare’s Large Volume Pickup Service is temporarily unavailable. Customers submitting requests will be contacted by PaintCare staff to schedule a pickup once the service resumes.

Large Volume Pickup (LVP) Service

Do you have more than 200 gallons?


If you have a large amount of unwanted paint (200+ gallons), PaintCare offers a free service that benefits both you and our volunteer drop-off sites — you don’t have to take your paint to a drop-off site a little at a time, and they don’t get overwhelmed with large volumes of paint. This service is only available to households or businesses with at least 200 gallons of paint that are located in a PaintCare state or jurisdiction (CA, CO, CT, DC, ME, MN, OR, RI or VT).

To learn more, please review the fact sheet provided below. Then call PaintCare — or fill out and submit the LVP Request Form — to request an appointment.

COVID-19: PaintCare Impacts & Resources


As a public health precaution due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the recommendation of the CDC posted March 16 to limit discretionary travel, PaintCare advises that households and businesses consider refraining from dropping off paint for recycling at PaintCare locations until all applicable local, state, and federal public health orders and guidance have been lifted. The current status of PaintCare collections services follows:


  • Many government-run household hazardous waste (HHW) programs are temporarily closing their year-round HHW facilities, postponing HHW drop-off events, or greatly reducing their hours. 
  • While most paint stores remain open, some have reduced their hours or are otherwise changing operations to minimize physical contact with customers. Many of these stores have asked us to temporarily remove them from the PaintCare site locator at
  • PaintCare has cancelled its own paint drop-off events through June and intends to reschedule them as soon as possible after government restrictions are lifted.
  • PaintCare’s pickup service for large volumes of paint (200+ gallons) is temporarily unavailable. Customers submitting requests will be contacted by PaintCare staff and informed about the service being temporarily unavailable and that PaintCare will notify them again when the service resumes.
