​Paint, brushes and rollers that can still be used are accepted at the following businesses:

Habitat for Humanity ReStore
510 County Road D
West New Brighton, MN
Pick-up available for a fee. Unopened or full cans of latex only.

The Recycling Zone
3365 Dodd Road
Eagan, MN


Bring leftover paint to The Recycling Zone or participating retail stores. Do not place in the garbage or pour down the drain or sewer.  


Place empty cans in the garbage. Leave the cover off, so your garbage hauler can see that the can is empty and dry.  Paint brushes and rollers that cannot be reused can be placed in the garbage.

Tip: Store leftover paint where it will not freeze. Frozen paint cannot be used or recycled. Buy the right amount. Ask the paint sales clerk to help you calculate how much paint to buy for the job.

Information on this page applies to households ONLY. Different rules may apply to businesses in Dakota County.
