Recycle plastic and paintcans

The places I would contact for recycling items would be Deerfield Disposal. Their website is: https://www.deerfield-disposal.com/recycling/

Paint cans that have paint in them are a problem when recycling. If the cans have oil based paint, they will need to be disposed of at a household hazardous disposal. These have been done annually in the past, but there is nothing planned for 2020 at this time. Paint cans that have latex paint in them should be opened, filled with a clay kitty litter product, and allowed to dry thoroughly then place in the trash.
Cans that are empty and have dried paint in them can be disposed of with your trash.
