Dunn-Edwards – Escondido (PaintCare Program)

This site accepts latex and oil-based house paint, stains and varnish in containers up to 5 gallons in size. This site does not accept aerosols (spray paint or other spray products), containers without original labels, or containers that are leaking or empty. Limit 20 gallons per visit.

This location will accept paint under the following conditions:

  • Paint 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.

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.
