Latex Paint Guidelines

Latex paint is non-hazardous and can be put into the landfill after it is dried up.  Take the lid off and let it dry out or take a cardboard box with newspaper in the bottom and pour it out into layers. Add cat litter or floor dry to each layer and let it dry. After it is dry you can put it into your regular garbage. Let your hauler know it is dried out latex paint so he knows he can take it.
