Dunn-Edwards – National City (PaintCare Program)

This location will accept architectural paint or “program products” which are defined as interior or exterior architectural coatings sold in containers of 5 gallons or less.

They do not accept:

  • Aerosol
  • Industrial
  • Original equipment
  • Specialty coatings

This location will accept paint under the following conditions:

  • Paint, primer or stain must be in its original container
  • Container must be labeled
  • Container must be in good condition and not leaking
  • Container must be five gallons in size or smaller
  • Up to 20 gallons per person per day
  • Best day to drop off is Fridays when they have the most storage space as pick up of recycled paint products from the store is on Thursdays

Drop-off sites may establish limits on the quantity of products they accept. Generally, the limit in small stores will be lower than in large store. Please check with the site if you have more than 5 gallons.

In addition to residents, this program is available to trade painters, contractors and other businesses with one restriction: If your business produces more than 27 gallons of hazardous waste per month, you may only use the drop-off sites for your latex paint and not for your oil-based paint. To learn more about the 27-gallon restriction, contact PaintCare or the California Department of Toxic Substances at 855-724-6809.
