Paint the Town

Let's get creative with ways to dispose of unused paints.

Donate at Habitat for Humanity, @habitatsandiego, or a community theater that can use them to paint sets, such as CYT, Christian Youth Theatre, here in San Diego Otherwise, dry out latex and acrylic paint -- leave tops off for small amounts, or if you have a lot, pour in sand or kitty litter to absorb it -- and throw it away after it dries. Oil-based paints are considered household hazardous waste; check with the city for collection days.
