How do I dispose of paint?

Water-based, as well as latex-based paint needs to be dried up with Speedi Dri or kitty litter, and then can be either thrown in your regular trash or brought to the Transfer Station. Oil-based paint should be taken to a Hazardous Waste Day event.

Per the Connecticut Paint Stewardship Program (Enacted July 1st, 2013), paint retailers offer year-round, free collection of latex, and oil-based paints. Please check with your paint provider for details.
