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? And Where can I find the best place for paint recycling in Indianapolis?
Most paints are made with chemicals that are highly toxic and cacogenic, 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.
