GASOLINE AND GAS CANS
Residents can bring gas to Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.

Empty gas cans can be discarded in the regular trash, just remove the lid. If they contain gasoline, the Macomb County Health Department accepts gas cans from Macomb County residents through their Household Hazardous Waste collection. For collection dates, times and locations call 586-469-5236.

LATEX PAINT

Latex paint is now accepted at Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.

Other times of the year, latex paint may be disposed of in your regular trash once it is solidified. Use cat litter or other suitable absorbent material to dry out the paint. Once the paint is solidified, leave the lid off the can and set it out for collection with your regular curbside refuse next to your trash toter cart. Waste hauling companies cannot and will not accept liquid waste materials. If you are unsure whether the paint is latex (water-based), refer to the clean-up instructions on the paint can. Clean-up for latex paint can be done using water. The Macomb County Habitat for Humanity ReStore does NOT accept paint.
