redecorating, or literally painting the town red,
there are a few rules to remember about latex paint.
Rule number one. Don’t buy more than you need.
Rule number two. Use what you have. Rule number
three. Dispose of the left over paint by mixing it
with some type of absorbent like old coffee grounds or
shredded paper. Then, just wait, and wait, and. Once
the paint is dry, just toss it in the trash. There is
however one exception. If you have usable paint
that’s at least ninety percent full, skip the
trash and head to one of our county collection
sites. We’ll donate your paint to Habitat for
Humanity. For more information on paint
disposal, visit our website at
