Latex paint is no longer considered a hazardous waste and may be discarded in household trash when completely dry and hard. Leave lids off the can so your waste management company can see the paint is dry. For small amounts, open can and allow to air dry. For larger amounts, add kitty litter, stir and allow to dry; or pour a thin layer (about one inch thick) of paint into a cardboard box lined with plastic. Allow to dry. Continue layering and drying one layer at a time until all the paint has been hardened.
Use up according to label instructions, give to someone who can use it, or take to a hazardous material collection program.
