How do I dispose of old paint cans?
Modern Disposal will take paint cans provided you do the following: remove the lid and let the paint air dry in the can. To speed up the process, stir in an absorbent material such as clay kitty litter, sawdust etc. and keep the lid off and place with your regular trash for pickup.

There are recycling places that will take paint left in the can as liquid but there is usually a charge to take it to them, check the phone book or online for those companies.

For more information, please visit the Modern Disposal website.
