Paint Disposal

Proper Disposal
To dispose of paint (oil-based and latex), remove lid and add mulch, shredded paper or kitty litter to speed the drying process. Alternatively, products can be purchased from most hardware stores that will quickly dry out latex paints. Once it is completely dried out, paint can be disposed of in regular household trash.

If approved by your contracted hauler, the dried material may be collected at the curb. It is recommended to leave the lids off of the containers so that collection crews can see that the paint is dry. Otherwise, dried paint may be brought to the landfill for disposal at
