What can I do with cans of old paint?
Empty and clean paint cans that contained latex paint can be put in your recycling bin. If paint remains, it must be in a solidified form, just add kitty litter or oil dry to absorb the paint and put in the trash. Do not place cans of paint in liquid form in regular trash or recycling, as the cans will contaminate the recycling or refuse and leak paint on the street. Latex paint is also accepted for a fee at certain Kane County recycling events

Oil-based paint can be disposed of at the City of Naperville Household Hazardous Waste drop off site located at 156 Fort Hill Drive in Naperville (just east of Route 59), on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This facility is open and available to all residents of Illinois. Business waste is not accepted. Latex paint recycling at Kane County events
