Paint Recycling in Indianapolis
Why it is Important to Recycle Your Pain
While most regular household items can be disposed of with your normal, day to day trash service, chemicals such as household cleaners, yard chemicals, and paint cannot be mixed in. While other harsher chemicals are understandable, why is paint considered a toxic chemical and why can’t it be placed with other trash?
Most paints are made with chemicals that are highly toxic and carcinogenic, causing short term and long term damage. Furthermore, paint also releases most of its chemicals into the air during the drying process. These toxins create ozone, which when left in a room is hazardous, but when left outside leads to long term damage to the ozone layer in our atmosphere. When paint is recycled, it is typically either re-blended or reprocessed, depending on the needs are at the time. These are mixed and distributed to major manufactures to recolor and use again.

So Where Does Fire Dawgs Come in For Paint Recycling in Indianapolis?
Unfortunately Fire Dawgs Junk Removal is not a center for paint recycling, nor do we take paint to be recycled. However, we will take you take your old or unused paint IF the paint is dried and not still in a liquid form during one of our services. Meaning, the paint is in a solid form and can’t be used. To determine if your paint cans meet this requirement, check to if your paint makes a “sloshing” noise when you shake it. If it does, then you need to have it dried before our service. Read our other blog to learn how to properly dispose of paint. Otherwise, our team will NOT take your paint cans. But what services does Fire Dawgs Junk Removal provide?
