Visit your local municipal household hazard disposal site to learn more about paint disposal!
A key tenant of our Life Cycle Thinking is disposal – proper disposal of paints. We provided tools for minimizing waste, however even with prudent practice we often have left over paint. It is quite reasonable to have some paint left over for touching up damaged areas. That said, to minimize clutter and avoid spills or unsafe disposal, it is important to think of other uses for paints and other household products. Note too that the hazards associated with handling and storing solvent containing paints are more stringent than for water-based paints. Hence it is important to check with your local governing agencies gauge best practice for paint disposal.
