Paint Disposal/Recycling

Guiry's accepts unused and leftover paint!

Guiry's makes recycling your leftover paint almost as easy as buying new paint, and there is no charge for this service. We take back all brands (not just the brands we sell) of acceptable house paint, stains and varnish during our regular business hours. Not every Guiry's store accepts used paint. Here is a listing of our stores that currently accept recycling (call the store before taking used paint):

Boulder - 2404 Pearl St - 303-444-3800
Centennial - 8262 S University Blvd - 303-770-2572
Denver LoDo - 2245 Market St - 303-292-0444
Denver South - 2121 S Colorado Blvd - 303-758-8244
Parker - 16534 Keystone Blvd - 303-805-4714

Prepare your unwanted paint, stains, and other acceptable program products by making sure the lids are secured tightly, no containers are leaking, and they have original labels and in their original containers. Please do not mix paints together.

Please do not bring empty paint cans; they can be disposed of in your regular trash or possibly in your recycling bins, depending on the services offered in your area. Recycling programs are different, so be sure to ask your recycling service if they allow empty, dry paint cans in your recycling bins. If they are not allowed, put them in your trash.

Pack your paint cans in a sturdy cardboard box in your vehicle and take them to a Guiry's drop-off site during normal business hours. We accept up to 5 gallons of paint per visit. It’s always best to call the store before bringing your paint to ask if they have enough space to accept the amount of paint you would like to recycle.

Products We Accept

We accept house paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings (e.g., shellac and varnish) but we do not accept aerosols (spray cans), solvents, and products intended for industrial or non-architectural use. The products we accept are referred to as “Program Products” or “architectural paint” and they must be in containers that are no larger than 5 gallons in size.

Paint must be in its original container and the container must have a label and a secured lid. We cannot accept open or leaking cans. Please review the following detailed list to find out what can be accepted, prior to dropping off your paint.
