What do I do with leftover paint?
Because latex (water-based) paint can be disposed of safely in the trash if the following procedures are in place, we encourage residents to use the following alternative.

Soak up paint by mixing it with an absorbent material (e.g. cat litter) or a commercially prepared absorbent (e.g. waste paint hardener) available at hardware / home improvement stores. Place the empty and completely dry paint can in your trash to be picked up by your waste hauler. Lids must be removed for the hauler's inspection.
