Household Hazardous Waste Event

Paint Disposal Tips:
If you can’t save, use up, donate, exchange or recycle leftover paint, as a last resort, you need to properly dispose of your leftover paint. Liquids are banned from landfills.
Oil based paint, paint thinner, adhesives, and print shop chemicals should be brought to a hazardous waste event.
Oil-based paints should not be discarded with the normal trash. They could pose a hazard to the hauler or the landfill. Instead, save it for a special paint collection or a household hazardous waste program in your community.
Latex based paint is non-hazardous and should be dried out and disposed of in the regular garbage.
Latex paints should be mixed with kitty litter or commercial product to solidify them and place them into your regular trash. Make sure the lids are off. Dried paint must be contained in a trash bag, cart, or can.
NEVER pour paint (latex or oil) down a sewer, sink or toilet connection. This can cause environmental damage in storm drains, can plug or add toxic vapors to septic systems and sanitary drains, and pollute local surface and ground water that may supply your drinking water.
