How do I get rid of latex paint?

Latex PaintOption 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.

Option 2:  You can take it to the Habitat for Humanity Restore located at 1310 Conant St. in Maumee.  They charge $2.00 per can.  If you have any questions about their program, please call 419-382-1964.

Option 3:  You can schedule an appointment to drop it off for $1.00 per can up to a gallon size can (anything larger up to 5 gallon size can is $5.00 per can )by calling our office at 419-213-2230.  We have appointments available on Thursday and Saturday mornings for all of your household hazardous waste.
