The County is still accepting latex paint, but it is no longer a hazardous waste.Latex is labeled water based or acrylic, but should not be poured down the drain or on the ground.
It is strongly recommended to only purchase what you will use. Left over paint can be donated to Habitat for Humanity, schools or theater groups.
Latex paint can be disposed of in the following manner: Dry out the paint. Once dried, it can be disposed of as regular trash with the lids removed. Commercial paint hardeners are available from paint stores, but only work with water based paints. If the can is empty, or the paint is dried, the container should be placed with other household trash,- but the lid must be removed so our staff can see there is no liquid paint.
