How do I dispose of paint?

Old latex paint can be dried up and disposed of in your trash. It poses no environmental threat. We will not accept it in liquid form though. You can speed up the drying process by adding an absorbent such as kitty litter, floor dry or sawdust. When dry, set the paint cans out with your trash, without the lids on. We will leave all paint cans with lids on and that still contain liquid.
