Paint Disposal

Oil-based paints and other toxins such as pesticides, fertilizers, cleaners and more are accepted through the Commission's Household Hazardous Material Facilities. Residents of both Scott County, Iowa and Rock Island County, Illinois can dispose of these items free of charge.

For more information, visit our household hazardous materials section.

Latex paint can be safely disposed of at home if you dry it out first. The process is simple:

1. Take the lid off
2. Let it dry out
3. Throw it away once it is no longer liquid 

NOTE: oil-based paint and stain cannot be disposed of at home. Scott & Rock Island County residents can dispose of these items free of charge during normal business hours.
