How do I dispose of latex paint?

Latex paint can be disposed of in the regular trash if it is first solidified by opening the paint can lid in an open safe area. Drying can be accelerated by adding kitty litter, wood chips, sawdust, or paint hardener (found in most paint stores/paint departments). Once the paint has dried and solidified it can be added to the household trash. Latex paint can be brought to the Harford Waste Disposal Center in liquid form and poured into a metal bin specifically designated for latex paint (charges apply).
