For latex based paint only, remove the lid and allow to harden or add kitty litter/sawdust to absorb the liquid. Put at the curb by 7:00 a.m. of your refuse day with the lid removed for pick-up with trash. Residents may also chip out dried paint, rinse and put can in recycling bin with lid off (a thin film of paint is okay).
Paint in liquid form or paint cans with lids still on will be left at the curb until the problem is corrected.
Oil Based Paint
Oil based paint is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly. Residents in the SOCRRA consortium may take to SOCRRA, 995 Coolidge, Troy, free of charge. Containers will not be returned.
No appointment is necessary.
