The 2018 Paint Collection Day was super successful! Thank you to our Solid Waste staff, Keep Tyler beautiful Board Members, Texas Environmental Services and Mesa Consulting!


Keep Tyler Beautiful and the City of Tyler Solid Waste Department host a Paint Collection Day every other year thanks to a pass-through grant from the East Texas Council of Governments. During this Paint Collection Day, Tyler residents can bring any used, old, or unwanted latex or oil-based paint to be disposed of properly. Paint is considered a hazardous household waste and it cannot be disposed of in the same manner as other waste. 




Paint Collection Day 2018


Latex and oil-based paints are accepted.

The Solid Waste Department is asking that residents not bring epoxy or aerosol paints.


Safety Tips for Transporting Hazardous Waste to the Event:

-Bring paint in its original containers with a label if possible.

-Make sure the container is sealed so it doesn’t leak in your car.

-If the container leaks, put it in a larger container and use an oil absorbing product such as “Oil Dry” or cat litter to soak up spills.
