  1. Hi,

    I’m planning to drop some Can with paint. Some of them says acrylic and some say Latex. I read that you don’t accept Latex. Where do I dispose Latex?

    1. Latex Paint
      Latex or water-based paints are not hazardous and need to be properly solidified so that they can be disposed of in your regular trash. To solidify, remove the lids and leave to air dry. Or fill the cans with sand or kitty litter prior to placing out for garbage collection. DO NOT RECYCLE.
