$$$ TIP to SAVE YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY $$$
* The BEST way to dispose of LATEX paint is to give it to someone who will use it, such as a friend or neighbor, or an organization such as Habitat for Humanity.
* NEXT BEST: Open your LATEX paint cans and let the paint dry out. Then the cans can be put in the regular trash at the transfer station any day it is open.
There is no need to spend your taxpayer money to treat latex paint as hazardous waste!
