To dispose of Paint/cans:
To properly dispose of liquid latex paint, dry it out and place the can next to the trash can with the lid off.
For the beauty of the community, DO NOT put paint cans in the trash that contain liquid paint. This creates a mess on the streets during the collection process and can result in fines from the NYS DEC.
Easy Disposal Instructions:
1 - Remove the lid and expose
the liquid paint to air in a well-ventilated area. Be sure to keep away from children and pets
2 - If there is a lot of paint, add cat litter or paint drying crystals (available at most hardware stores) to the paint. Leave the lid off and wait for the paint to be absorbed.
3 - When the paint is dry, put can and lid in the trash (leave the lid off the can)
