Follow these tips to avoid having to dispose of paint

  • Buy only the paint you need.
  • Use all your paint by applying extra coats.
  • Store paint so it lasts by covering the opening with plastic wrap and making sure the lid fits securely.  Store the paint can upside down.  with the plastic wrap in place, the paint will create a tight seal around the lid, keeping the paint fresh until you need it again.

Latex Paint

  • Dry leftover paint and discard it with your regular trash.
  • Remove the lid and let your leftover latex paint air dry away from children ans pets.  You may stir in a cup of cat litter to speed dry the material.
  • You may dispose of the dried paint along with normal trash.
