INSTRUCTIONS FOR ABSORPTION OF LATEX AND WATER BASED PAINTS:
Add equal parts cat litter to latex paint in the can. If you have more than a half a can, you can also pour paint into a separate sealed leak proof container.
Stir the cat litter into the paint until it thickens and will not spill. Allow the mixture to sit for 24-48 hours. Alternatives to using cat litter are sawdust, dirt, shredded paper, and paint hardener.
Place paint cans in individual clear bags with the lid off, tied, sealed, and labeled for a visual confirmation that the paint has been properly treated.
Submit work order to schedule a pickup.
* Please note that mixing paint with absorbent material only applies to latex or water-based paint. Oil based paint is hazardous to the environment and must be handled separately. *
