Paint Cans

Paint cans are considered hazardous waste when they contain paint. If the cans are empty or completely dry they can be placed in the trash.

How to dry latex paint:

  1. Mix in some kitty litter, sawdust, or sand and allowing it to dry out thoroughly in the sun.
  2. Stir the mixture to ensure that it is completely dried out.
  3. The paint and can may be thrown out with your trash as long as the lid is removed.
