How can I dry latex paint on my own?
Latex paint is not a hazardous waste, and can be safely disposed of with your regular household garbage once it is dried out and no longer liquid. To dry latex paint, remove the lid from the paint cans, mix in an absorbent to speed the drying process (such as kitty litter, dirt or sand) and allow the paint to dry completely before disposing with your regular trash pickup.
