Paint, latex • Refuse (see note)

Paint cans containing small amounts of latex paint can be disposed of by first drying out the paint: open the lid and let the paint dry outdoors, away from children and pets.

If the can of latex paint still has a substantial amount of liquid paint (one inch or more) it will not dry; you can simply add a paint hardener/drying product, which can be purchased at any hardware store. Once the latex paint has completely hardened you may dispose of it as refuse.

Of course, if the latex paint is usable and there is a significant quantity, try to use it up; or, try to donate it to a community organization.
