If you have these products intermixed or contaminated then they can be received as HHW at our collection location.
|| At every collection, in every part of the state, paint is the most common material delivered by Wisconsin citizens. Encouragement to use up leftover paint or give usable paint to a neighbor has not decreased the amount of latex paint significantly. Today's latex (water-based) paint has a very low level of toxicity. Disposing of it at a household hazardous waste collection day is very expensive. Therefore, the City of Racine encourages people with unwanted latex paint to use other options.
