Disposing of old paint


Recommended Posts

technically thats illegal ( i think).....to do it properly (legally) they should be taken to a hazardous waste facility. depending on where u r located, most cities/counties have free drop off collections once or twice a year for hazardous waste disposal (gas, paint, batteries, oil, etc), check with your local city or co. office. usually advertised in local city/county paper or newsletter sometime, ours is usually for spring/fall cleanup in may/oct

The company that collects our garbage told us if you take the lids off and let everything get completely hard and dry, they'll take the cans and lids in the regular trash pick-up. Even if they're still half full, as long as it's all dry.

Same as I've been told.

St Louis County Solid Waste has Hazardous Waste collections randomly though out the year. They will take the stuff at no charge for household users. Stuff like fluorescent tubes, antifreeze, paints and stains. Just watch their HSOforum or your local paper or give them a call.

Or you can do as stated above.
