harden. Crack the hardened paint and throw out with regular trash. Replace
lids on the cans and put out with recyclable. If it takes too long to
allow the paint to harden, simply mix the paint with about four cups of an
absorbent such as clay-based kitty litter. After the paint is longer
liquid, wrap it in newspaper and throw out with regular trash.
