York County has partnered with local company Coastal VA Environmental Coatings (CVEC) for the recycling of latex paint. Collected, good quality latex paint will be given to CVEC for processing into a rejuvenated recycled latex paint with a goal of lessening the amount of paint that ends up in landfills.

Prior to bringing paint to the Waste Management Center for recycling, be sure you inspect it for the following: bad odor, oil-based, cottage cheese consistency, hard bottom/heel.* If the paint has any of these attributes, please save it for a future VPPSA collection for disposal (see dates and details here).

The following materials are accepted for recycling:

  • Latex paint only
  • Paint must have smooth consistency after stir
  • Variations of the following colors allowed – white, off-white, red, blue, yellow and gray

Paint NOT accepted:

  • Cans without labels
  • Rusty Cans
  • *Conditions listed above

Drop-off hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the York County Waste Management Recycling Center, 145 Goodwin Neck Road. Individuals will be required to stay on site while the paint is inspected to determine its recyclability. There is a limit of 5 gallons per resident per day.

For more information contact the Waste Management Center at 890-3780.
