Option 1: You can dry it up and throw it away. You can do this by adding kitty litter, oil-dry, or sand to the paint. Once it's dry, leave the lid off so your trash hauler can see that it is hard and they will take it with your normal trash. If you don't have access to kitty litter, oil-dry, or sand, you can get a cardboard box or newspaper and pour a layer of paint on it, let it dry, pour another layer, let it dry, and just keep repeating the process until it is all dry. Once it's dry, just throw it away.
