What to do with Latex Paint

Latex paint will not be accepted at this year’s Clean Sweep event. You may dispose of latex and water-based paint with your trash. You must either fill the can with cat litter to absorb the paint or remove the can lid to let the paint completely harden.
Oil based paint, lacquers, mercury products and other hazardous waste cannot be disposed of in the trash. You can dispose of these items at our annual Clean Sweep events.

Latex paint will not be accepted with the Clean Sweep program as it is not considered hazardous waste.  There are, however, measures you should take to properly dispose of latex paint.  Residents may dispose of latex and water-based paint with normal trash collection provided the necessary steps are taken.
