Paint Disposal

The Village of Hamburg no longer accepts paint for disposal during the drop off the Monday after large trash week.  Latex and oil paint may be disposed of at any Sherwin Williams location or Arthur's Hardware in Orchard Park.  They are part of the PaintCare recycling program.  It is recommended that you call before dropping off items to confirm store hours and to make sure the store can accept the amount and type of paint you would like to recycle.  They accept latex and oil-based house paint, stains and varnish in containers up to 5 gallons in size.  They do not accept aerosols (spray paint or other spray products), containers without original labels or containers that are leaking or empty.  For more information or other drop off locations, go to


Or you may also dispose of latex paint with your weekly garbage by doing the following:  

*  Allow paint to dry up. 

*  If paint is not dried up, add kitty litter or sawdust and allow it to dry/harden. 

*  Once the paint is dried/hardened, place the container on the ground next to your tote with the lid off so Sanitation staff can see it is dried up.
