Disposal of Paint
How To Dry Out Your Non-Hazardous Paint
Liquid paint is banned from landfill and therefore cannot be accepted by the council in this state - you'll need to wait for the paint to harden before you can dispose of the can of paint.
To speed up the hardening process for larger amounts of paint, add some sawdust, soil or sand to the cans and leave it to solidify. For smaller amounts, pour the paint onto card or paper and leave it to dry before including it with your general household waste.
Once the paint is hard, you can take the can to your local Household Recycling Centre or place the can in your grey bin to be disposed of appropriately.
Hazardous paint must be disposed of at the Household Recycling Centre.
