    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!

    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!

    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

    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.
