How to Get Rid of Old Paint

 How to Get Rid of Old Paint

Do you have some old paint or paint cans you would like to get rid of? Here are some suggestions to help you get it out of your house:

  • If your paint is new, you may be able to donate it to Habitat For Humanity.
  • Dry your paint out and throw it away.

Here are a couple of safe ways to dry out your paint:

  • Stir some kitty litter or sawdust into the paint.
  • Get some paint hardener and mix it into the can.
  • Get out some of your old cardboard storage boxes, flatten them and then pour the paint onto the boxes and let them dry in the sun. Then you can just throw away or recycle the flattened boxes.

If you have oil paint, you should know that it can’t be disposed of normally, so the last option is your community’s Hazardous Waste Disposal Day. There are usually one or two times a year where they collect waste. All you have to do is drive to your local drop off site and they’ll take all your paint for free.
