Before disposing of latex paint, please consider giving usable paint to friends, neighbors, theater groups or housing assistance organizations.

If you must dispose of latex paint, please follow these directions:

  • For smaller amounts: Remove the lid and let dry in the can. Occasionally stir the paint.
  • For larger amounts: Line a cardboard box with a plastic trash bag. Layer an absorbent material (kitty litter, sawdust, shredded newspaper, etc.) on the bottom, pour a layer of paint and repeat as necessary. Once the paint is dry, dispose of the entire trash bag and dry empty paint cans in your regular trash. Any oil or lead based paints should be taken to a hazardous waste collection facility.
