Just paint it on the side of your house and wait for it to eventually fall off like everyone else up there. You can leave your batteries in the front yard until the dirt piles up around them and they disappear underground like all your neighbors do.

I think they gather all the junk they can, hoping
that someone will buy it and they can make a buck.
But, hey, I don't blame them. We all could use some extra bucks.

To get rid of paint legally all you have to do is apply it to cardboard, paper, etc. When it dries you are allowed to discard it with other household trash. I do not know if or when you are allowed to drop off liquid paint. Or if you have a large quanity you can normally donate to local Church or any group that builds homes for those needing help.

Maybe we should ask the Floridiot what they do with it in good old Bithlo, Floridia, U.S.A.?

We take it to the 2 most redneck cities in America; Clayton and McIntyre Georgia. Besides, Bithlo doesn't have old paint, they don't paint anything there.

If you're too dumb to know what to do with leftover paint, then you should expect smart aleck comments.

Well that comment just showed your ignorance..Guess I know how you handle the environment. You must be one of them "just throw it in your yard people up here". I now know what to do since I spoke with those who know what really goes on around here, so thanks for nothing. Rude people....

Home Depot sells a coagulant that you mix into unused paint. It solidifies the paint and then the landfill will accept it.

I let old paint dry out (take the lid off) then take it with the other trash to the transfer station.

Could you please share with me what they told you to do? I read replies about the newspaper/cardboard and coagulant, but aren't both those methods just disposing the dried out exact same stuff the same way that the liquid is disallowed?

Years ago, in NY, there would be 2 weekends each year when such hazardous waste stuff could be dropped off (residents only, no "commercial")... no cost, and the county would properly dispose of it. Don't know if they still do that, but seemed smart to me.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
