It is illegal to dump paint, stains, varnishes, thinners, strippers, brush cleaners, other solvents, epoxies, glues sealants, wood preservatives, aerosol spray paints into storm drains. The same is true for sings, toilets, trash, and disposal on the ground. Penalties for improper disposal are severe and induce fines, incarceration, and responsibility for clean-up costs. By disposing of hazardous paint waste properly through your local Hazardous Waste Collection Program, you can help protect our drinking water and aquatic life in our creeks and the ocean.
