The Brewster Recycling Center also maintains an old/unused paint collection program. Old or unused paints, at least 3/4s full or more may be brought, to the station where others may find them useful. All remaining paint is then shipped to a reuse facility or are used as a fuel source. Oil-based and water-based paints are accepted, but cannot be mixed. Please see one of the attendants for access to the Paint Recycling Shed. Please note that the Paint Recycling Shed will be closing at the end of November and will reopen in April. This is also a good way to eliminate potentially hazardous/problematic materials from your home. Smaller amounts may be disposed of by pouring over cat litter or other soluble material and then thrown away with household trash.
