Containers with any quantity in them should come to a household hazardous waste collection day held by the Alliance. Click here for upcoming dates in the spring and in the fall.
Dry paint is safe to go in the trash. If there is a little bit in the can, take the lid off and let it air dry (keep away from children and pets). If there is a lot in the can you can add saw dust or crumpled up newspaper and once that is dry, it can go in the trash.
Metal cans can be recycled in the scrap metal container in at the Transfer Stations as long as they are empty.
