Latex paint is NOT a hazardous waste.

 

In order to safely dispose of latex paint, solidify the paint before placing it

out with your trash. Simply take the top off the can and place it outside, away

from children and pets, and allow it to harden.  If the can is very full, place

 

 

kitty litter in the can and stir until all the paint is absorbed. Empty, lidless

cans should be placed in a box and put out with your regular trash.
