How to Throw Away Paint - Disposing of Hazardous Materials. Painting is an easy way to update a room, but often you end up with a lot left over. But don’t just dump it down the drain! Leftover paint can be hazardous, as it contains materials that can leak into the ground, cause physical injury to sanitation workers, or contaminate septic tanks. Here’s how to properly dispose of it. Think before you toss. If sealed correctly, latex paint can last up to 10 years, and oil-based paint up to 15. Next time your child turns the living room wall into a canvas or a piece of furniture scrapes the paint, you’ll be glad you saved the leftovers.

The EPA recommends keeping paint in its original container (never in food containers) and with the original label. To seal the can, place plastic wrap over the paint lid and hammer it down. Once your paint is hard and lumpy, or if it has a particularly foul smell, it has probably gone bad and should be disposed. Try to donate it. Dry it out before you throw it away.
