Sherwin Williams – Carlsbad (PaintCare Program)

For Households and Businesses

Restrictions: Limit: 20 gallons per visit. Call ahead for hours and to make sure the store can accept the amount and type of paint you would like to recycle.

For Households:

Please review the detailed list of PaintCare products and non-PaintCare products.

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.

To be accepted for drop-off, PaintCare products must be in their original containers of no larger than 5 gallons in size, must have the original manufacturer’s printed label on the container, and must be covered with a secured lid. They cannot accept open or leaking cans.

For Businesses:

To use the PaintCare program for oil-based paint, a business must qualify as an exempt generator under federal and any analogous state hazardous waste generator rules. Please visit our Very Small Quantity Generator page for more information on exempt generator rules. If your business does not qualify as an exempt generator, it will not be able to use the program for oil-based paint, but it can still use the program for latex products.

For more information, you can check out the Recycle with PaintCare Brochure.
