How do I dispose of old paint?
With latex paint (water-based) paints, remove the lids from the paint cans, place in the sun, and stir occasionally to allow the paint to dry out. What will be left will be a thick material. Then place the open can with the lid off in the trash. You may also add an absorbent material such as kitty litter or old newspapers to help with the solidification process.
Oil-based paints must be disposed of through our household hazardous waste program.
