    Thank you for offering this service and a way to responsibly dispose of all of our latex paint. Everything about your service was easy and professional. the communication was great. I needed to make some changes to our numbers last minute and Jim made it a breeze. Our pick up was scheduled for 3 days after we sent in a request. We simply needed to leave our old paint on our steps that morning and they picked it up and sent me a message letting me know when it was complete, so helpful not needing to be home for the pick up ! Thank you ! I highly recommend your company !

    Very easy to schedule a pickup for all my old latex paint. I encourage everyone not to throw your old paint in the garbage. We’ve already created enough environmental disasters. Let these guys dispose of it safely. Great job guys!

    Highly recommended! The website is informative and easy to use, and Jim was super, super nice. Because of my own snafu, I wasn’t able to hand off the paint at the original appointed time, and Jim was so responsive, friendly, patient, and accommodating over several rounds of rescheduling. Greatly appreciated!! Will definitely use again if the need arises!

    I wish I knew about this a couple of years ago. We had a lot of paint in our house from some recent work we did and you guys were the perfect solution. Sent a note over the weekend and the paint was picked up on Tuesday. No hassle at all – it is a great service!

    If I’d known getting rid of old paint was this easy, I would have done it ages ago. I recruited other people in my building, and we got rid of tons of paint cans all at once. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Got Paint? Pickup if you’ve got old latex paint taking up space in your storage unit.

  23. John Stiffler

    Contacted the the Got Paint Pickup team via email and received a prompt email reply, followed by a text which showed attention to detail. Jim and I hashed things out on timing of the pickup, how many cans, where to put them, etc. He was prompt, professional, and clear in his communications. The payment process was painless and today he came as advertised. He followed up with a text saying the paint had been picked up. All around, a simple, painless experience. Great job Jim and team! Highly recommend!

    We just had over 30 gallons of paint picked up that we had been stockpiling for decades! So easy and hassle free. My husband and I highly recommend this company if you have latex paint cans you want to responsibly remove from your home (without using kitty litter!)

    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. Jim drove to my work and picked up the paint from my car, he very polite and professional. I love that one of his business goals is to recycle much of the paint to give to Habitat for Humanity. SO great!
    I will reference Got Paint Pick Up to anyone who will listen!! Hands down awesome experience and I removed paint in a legal manner 🙂

    So easy. Our condo building had a stash of old paint cans from various past and present owners that no one claimed. Got paint came and took it away. Very friendly, responsive, and quick.

    • Town: Chicago
  38. Leslie Penles

    What a great service! Requesting a pick up was easy and they came the next day. Their prices are comparable to local hardware stores but the advantages are they pick it up, you are supporting a locally owned small business and also helping the environment. Will definitely use again and recommend to others.

    We are in the process of moving and we had no idea what to do with all of our latex paint. Fortunately we came access Jim and his business. I set up the pick up time and Jim was right on time and hauled away all the paint. Much less expensive than I would’ve guessed. I recommend him if you need to get rid of paint.

  41. 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!

    • Town: Wilmette
  42. Cindy

    I used Gotpaintpickup since we are selling our home and wanted to dispose of unused paint in a responsible manner. They were very efficient and picked up the paint exactly when they said they would. I would recommend them and not hesitate to again use their service. The owner is very friendly and appreciative for the business since they are a relatively new enterprise.

    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.
