    Woo-hoo!
    Less than 2 hrs ago, I had a big dilemma—wanted to get rid of paint left in my apt—but oh no, not oil-based—it’s latex!! And no one wants latex (“donate it” “paint something” “mix with kitty litter”)—oh sure, easy for you to say BUT I just wanted it gone!! Then divine intervention came into play—and voila, I was connected to James!! And the rest is history. I’m going to take a nap!😊

    What I saw is what I got. It was exactly what the site said. I called, filled out the form, made an appointment, and at the pre-arranged moment, I took the used paint gallons which had been sitting on a shelf for months, to the door and presto, they were picked up by a vivid GOT PAINT pick up van by the boss himself. The price was right, I didn’t have to search for a recycling center and the cans were gone. Very impressive. I would highly reccommend this service!

    Today was my first time using this service. I will recommend them to everyone I know who have the need to dispose old paint. It is a fantastic service. I had a lot of cans of paint from 2016 plus from the previous owners. Jim made it so easy to schedule the pick up. He was prompt and quick. The price was very reasonable too. Thank you.

    I’m so grateful to have found this company! Once I realized Chicago’s recycling center doesn’t accept paint, I was stressing about what to do with all the leftover paint the prior owners left in our garage when we moved in. A quick Google search lead me to Got Paint?, I submitted a form, and they responded a couple days later. The next day, the paint was gone and I’m so happy! Reasonably priced, excellent customer service, and EASY!

    I was a little apprehensive about having someone come to my home/work. Jim was very communicative and was wiling to adjust his schedule to fit mine.

  99. Robin Baugher

    How to responsibly dispose of thirty-seven gallons plus twenty quarts of latex paint…some over a decade old? I opened a couple of the lightest ones to dry them out, thinking “how hard can this be?” Within minutes, managed to get paint splattered on my husband’s favorite work gloves, on the screwdriver and on the bottom of my shoe. Before things got a lot worse, I signed up for Got Paint Pickup. Jim came out the next day and my paint problems dissolved. He said some of it may even be useful to Habitat for Humanity. I hope he branches out into recycling other stuff. This was money well spent! Thanks, Jim!

    Got Paint Pickup was a life saver for me. I had recently moved and the new owner didn’t want any of the current paint colors I had left behind. GPP came the very next day after I contacted them! It was a huge stress reliever and so affordable. So much better than messing around with kitty litter etc. on your own. Best value of my move. Try them.
