Daily Paint Collection

Starting in August 2016, Ivy Material Utilization Center (MUC) accepts paint containers on a daily basis. Note: due to traffic and staffing during our Fall and Spring Household Hazardous Waste Days, patrons with paint only will be routed through the Household Hazardous Waste lanes.  Paint brought on normal operation days will check in with the scale house and be directed over to the tipping floor area for disposal.

•1 Gallon, 5 Gallon, Quarter Gallon Containers

•Must Be in Original Paint Containers


No Spray Paint, Paint-related Products, Adhesives (Glue, Putty, Caulk), Paint Removers, Thinners, Solvents, Sealants, nor Wood Preservatives. These items are classified as Household Hazardous Waste. Please dispose of those items at our Spring or Fall Household Hazardous Waste Days.

This new program is free of charge for Albemarle County and Charlottesville City residents.  Customers should check-in at the scale house and proceed to the transfer station with their paint containers. As a part of this program, we cannot accept anything other than paint containers in their original containers. PLEASE follow these rules so that this program can be successful!
