**Latex paint is not accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste Dropoff Site, since it can be thrown away with regular trash once it is in its solid form. To get latex paint in a solid form that is acceptable for trash collection, you must dry it out. Simply leave the lid off of the paint, and mix the paint with sand, saw dust or kitty litter to speed up the drying process. Once the latex paint is dry and ready for disposal, leave the lid off when you dispose of the can. That way, your waste hauler can see that the paint is dry.
