Empty cans: Put in the garbage
Empty cans and cans with completely dried latex paint (water-based) may be put in the garbage. You can dry out small amounts of latex paint at home.
- Remove lid and put lid in garbage.
- Stir occasionally to speed up the drying process.
- Leave the cover off so your waste hauler can see that the can is empty and dry.
- Put the paint can on top of your garbage can.
