 How Do I Properly Dispose of Old Paint?

Paint Can Junk Removal - Cumming, Forsyth

 

One question we at Southern Rubbish get asked a lot is, “How do I get rid of old paint cans?” Well, there are a few options and its a lot easier than you think.

 

  1. Use it up. If there’s still a use for the paint, use it for your laundry room or a closet that might need some touching up. If it was used for the common areas of the home like the living room or the kitchen, then look around and see if there are areas that need touching up. If you have kids or pets, you will absolutely find areas that need to be touched up with a few brushes of paint.
  2. Call us! If you don’t want to deal with, call a junk removal company. Southern Rubbish can properly dispose of it for you. Almost all of our customers who call us to clear out junk in their garage also add a few used paint cans to pile.
  3. DIY. A lot of our customers are proud do-it-yourselfers. Nothing wrong with that! If you want to handle the disposal of the paint yourself, just get some cat littler and mix it in with the paint. The paint will start to dry almost instantly and you can toss it in with your regular trash.

I hope these tips helped you. If you have any questions at all, please give us a call. Or you can stop by our office. We’re located at 3250 Keith Bridge Rd. Cumming, GA. That’s in the North Forsyth area.
