Latex Paint Disposal
Latex paint is not hazardous since it is made from water.  Consider donating usable paint to friends, neighbors, theater groups or housing assistance organizations.

Latex Paint Disposal Instructions:
For small amounts:
remove the lid and let dry in the can. Stir the paint occasionally to speed dry.
For large amounts: line a box with a plastic bag. Place an absorbent material (kitty litter, sawdust, oil dry) on bottom, pour a layer of paint and repeat as necessary.
Dispose of the dried paint and cans in the regular garbage.
