Latex (water-based) paint is not hazardous. Pour latex paint out in thin layers on a disposable material such as newspaper or cardboard. Allow each layer to dry completely then roll up the newspaper/cardboard and place it in the trash. This is only acceptable for latex paints. Oil-based paint is a household hazardous waste and requires disposal at a permanent facility or collection event. Visit the Ecology Action Center Website.
Household items can be given or sold to McLean County community members through a number of different online platforms such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist or the Nextdoor app. Visit the Ecology Action Centers Guide to Reuse for further ideas.
