Latex Paint
Latex paint is no longer considered a hazardous waste and may be discarded in household trash when COMPLETELY DRY AND HARD. Leave lids off the can so your waste management company can see the paint is dry. For small amounts, open can and allow to air dry. For larger amounts, add kitty litter, stir and allow to dry; or pour a thin layer (about one inch thick) of paint into a cardboard box lined with plastic. Allow to dry. Continue layering and drying one layer at a time until all the paint has been hardened.

Use the product according to label directions, give leftovers to someone who can safely use them, store until it can be used, or take to a hazardous materials program.

Hazardous Household Chemical Pick-Up Program
The City has contracted with Curbside Recycling Inc. to do a door-to-door recycling program for hazardous household chemicals again this year.  To initiate a pick-up of your chemicals, visit their website at www.curbsideinc.com or call them at (800) 449-7587.

Curbside will explain to you a number of hazardous waste pick-up options for you to consider and will help you decide which is the most economical for you. The total cost for these services range from $88.00 to $109.00. Residents are required to pay a co-payment in the amount of $20.00 upon pick-up of the chemicals by Curbside. The City will cover up to a maximum of $89.00 per household per year. In the event that the total cost of a resident’s pick-up exceeds $109.00 (including the $20.00 co-pay plus the City’s contribution of up to $89.00), then the remaining amount due is the responsibility of the resident to pay in advance directly to Curbside.

Funds for this program are limited and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the event that all funds are utilized for the year, the program will be suspended. The City encourages residents to work with your neighbors to pool together your hazardous chemicals to maximize the funds available for the program.
