What do I do with paint?

Look at the label on the can to see if it is latex or oil based paint.  Latex paint is soap and water cleanup.

You can dispose of latex paint by mixing it with kitty litter or oil dry.  Once the paint is dry, take the lid off and throw it in with your garbage. 

If it is oil based paint, bring it to the transfer station where it will be treated as a hazardous waste at no charge from households.
