HOW TO DEAL WITH LATEX PAINT DISPOSAL:
Latex paint is not a hazardous waste. You can dry out latex paint at home by following these guidelines: In a well-ventilated area, open the can and add sand or kitty litter. If the can is full, splash some out onto newspaper. Add sand or kitty litter to the remaining paint in the can. The paint will solidify in a few days. Once it is completely solid, place it out with your trash, keeping the lid off. If you do not solidify your latex paint, one of two things will happen. Either the trash hauler will not pick it up, or if they do, the paint will spill onto your street when the trash is compacted.
