Where can I dispose of paint?

Latex Paint

  • If the paint is old and dry, you can leave the lid off and dispose of in your regular trash.
  • If the paint is still a liquid, you can add kitty litter or other absorbent material such as sawdust or mulch, and stir it well until it becomes very thick and will not drip or run.  Once you’ve done this, you can leave the lid off and dispose of it in your regular trash.  Please note:  this ONLY APPLIES to latex (water based) paint. 

Latex or Oil Based Paint

  • VPPSA provides scheduled Household Chemical Collection/Computer Recycling events for residents of its member communities on the Peninsula.  See schedule
