Latex or water-based paint can and should be disposed of with regular trash when completely dry. Doing this saves program funding for its intended purpose, to dispose of toxic and hazardous wastes. Kitty litter can quickly dry out latex paint when mixed at a 1:1 ratio. This can be done in a large garbage bag inside a cardboard box. View instructions:
