Latex paint is not a HAZARDOUS WASTE—Use it up or Dry it up!!
All residual/leftover paint must be hardened or dried.  ~


For Small Amounts:
Cans 1/4 or less full, simply remove the lid and place cans in a safe, well-ventilated area and they will dry in a few days. Or Line a box with old newspaper and pour small amounts of paint onto the paper, letting each layer dry before adding another. The painted papers and box can then be out into the regular trash. Do not put Lid back on can when disposing in household trash.

For Large Amounts:
Cans more than a 1/4 full, Solidify~ Stir in Kitty Litter or paint hardener. Once paint is solidified, it can be disposed in regular trash.

Pass it on!
Consider posting your useable paint on freecycle.org, Craigslist or swap sites.
