HOW TO DISPOSE OF PAINT
Oil-based paint is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of at a proper hazardous waste facility that accepts this type of paint. Our junk hauling company can dispose of your oil-based paint for you.
Latex paint is water-based and is the type of paint sold at your local hardware store for painting your home or office’s interior and exterior. This paint can be taken to a hazardous waste site; however, there are other methods of disposal, too.
- Donate your old paint. Many non-profits need paint for their endeavors. This can include local churches and theatre organizations.
- Take it back. Many paint and hardware stores offer buy-back programs for unused paint.
- Throw it away. To throw your old paint away, simply dry it out and place in your trash. You can accelerate this process by using cat litter.
Don’t ever put paint down your sink; it can not only clog your pipes, but it can cause problems at your waste disposal plant, too. Don’t dump paint cans illegally in someone else’s dumpster or leave them by the side of the road. Call our local junk hauling company if need be.
