A Safer, Easier Way to Recycle Paint

Good for our customers—and the environment.

We are proud to announce a new partnership with PaintCare—a nonprofit organization committed to making it easy and convenient for households and businesses to recycle leftover paint. PaintCare drop-off sites accept house paint, primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings like shellac and varnish. Loconsolo Paints is proud to work with this organization and we have dedicated our Coney Island Avenue store as a drop-off location. Visit our address below and drop off any acceptable paint item!
