Disposing of leftover paint incorrectly can be dangerous to humans and the environment
You actually have several options for getting rid of your excess paint, so keep reading to find the one that works best for you.
-Save It For Later
If you end up with a good deal of paint left after finishing your project, you might want to save it for later use. You never know when one of your precious angels will decide to turn a wall into a canvas or when a piece of furniture will need a touch-up.
To save excess paint, always leave it in its original container and label it with the date you opened it and which room it was used.
If you don’t plan to ever use the paint again, but you feel bad just tossing it out, try to find someone who might use it. Another option is to post your paint online to see if anyone in your local area can use it.
-Dry It Out To Throw It Out
You can, in most locations, throw away dried paint with your regular household garbage. It’s always wise to check the laws in your neck of the woods first before throwing out any type of paint.
-Let The Pros Do It If You’re Not Sure
If you just aren’t sure of the proper way to dispose of your leftover paint, you can let the professionals do it for you. Many home improvement stores will take your leftover paint and dispose of it properly.
-Estimate How Much Paint You’ll Need
For future paint projects, you can get an accurate estimate of how much paint you’ll need by heading to just about any brand-name paint website. Many of these sites have paint estimators that let you know how much paint to buy so there is very little left over. By using these estimators, you waste less money and contribute to a healthier environment for all.
