Latex Paint Disposal
Latex paint is not hazardous since it is made from water.  Consider donating usable paint to friends, neighbors, theater groups or housing assistance organizations.

Latex paint disposal instructions:
For small amounts: remove the lid and let dry in the can. Stir the paint occasionally to speed dry.
For large amounts: line a box with a plastic bag. Place an absorbent material (kitty litter, sawdust, oil dry) on bottom, pour a layer of paint and repeat as necessary.
Dispose of the dried paint and  cans in the regular garbage.

How to place your recycling at the curb
• Place all recyclable material in cart. There is no need to separate paper from glass, aluminum, plastic and tin.
• Do not place trash in your recycling cart.
• Be sure to have recyclables at the curb the night before your collection day or by 6:00 am on your day of collection. Recycling trucks will not return for late set outs.
• Please keep your recycle cart at least 4 ft away from your trash cart. The best solution is to place your recycling and trash cart on opposite sides of your driveway.
