How do I know if my paint is latex, or oil-based?

Latex paints cans will often use the terms latex, acrylic, water-based, or water clean-up on the container. Oil-based paints, however will often use the terms oil, alkyd, combustible, or flammable on the packaging.


Can I put my old paint out with the trash?

If your latex paint has completely hardened, it is safe to put out with the trash. The more paint that is left in the can, the longer it takes to harden. Oil-based paints and stains should be disposed of through your local solid waste district office.


Can I dispose of my paint myself?

Yes. There are a couple of safe methods of disposing of latex paint including:

  • Contact a local paint recycler (Yes, that's us!)
  • Lay out several layers of old newspaper and pour the remaining contents of the paint container. Allow it to completely dry. Roll up the dried paint and put it out for the trash.
  • Mix the leftover paint with kitty litter or mulch to allow it to properly dry. Put the dried paint out for the trash.
