Latex Paint Disposal Hints

Latex paint can be thrown in the regular trash, but it must be SOLID.  To solidify latex paint, you must:

  • remove the lid

  • add enough cat litter to the paint to absorb all of the liquid

  • make sure the cat litter is mixed down to the bottom of the can

  • leave the lid off, place the paint can in a sunny location, out of the reach of children and pets, and let it sit until it hardens

  • once the paint/cat litter mixture is hard, it can be thrown in the trash

If you have a full can of paint, simply take a box and line it with a trash bag.  Solidify half the paint with cat litter in the box and solidify the remaining paint with cat litter right in the can, following the directions above.
