Latex & Acrylic Paint

Latex and acrylic paint are water based and are therefore non-hazardous. Landfills will not accept paint in liquid form due to restrictions on free liquids. To dispose of latex or acrylic paint, simply open the paint cans and insert gravel, sand, cat litter, or other similar substance and allow to dry overnight. Once the paint has dried and hardened, the can and solid paint may be placed in your regular garbage.
