We own a small painting business and over the years have accumulated paint that has been frozen and rethawed and is therefore unusable. Do you know if we can take multiple five-gallon paint buckets to ToxDrop?



Paint is much better shaken, not stirred, rather than frozen. And old paint is much better off taken to a ToxDrop than poured on the rocks.

Indianapolis ToxDrop will accept 20 gallons of liquid waste or 75 lbs of solid waste per visit from Marion County residents.

Don’t live in Indianapolis? Most municipalities or counties have Household Hazardous Waste collections throughout the year. Just Goodsearch (and raise money for your favorite environmental organization) “[your county name] tox drop” to see what’s available.

Piece out,
