Paint

1. Remove lids.
2. Mix in kitty litter, floor-dry, sawdust, or newspaper strips to absorb and speed the drying process.
3. Dry completely.
4. Bag up the dried paint cans and throw it in with your household trash.

What if the can is full?

1. Remove Lid.
2. Pour into a plastic bag-lined cardboard box.
3. Mix in kitty litter, floor-dry, sawdust, newspaper strips
4. Dry completely
5. Bag it up and throw it in with your household trash or call for a special collection (fees apply)

Why am I required to do this?
Liquid paint is banned from the landfill. In a dried state, it can be landfilled in this least costly preparation method. Personal preparation saves the expense of doing these steps.

The City of Grand Forks thanks you for your time and effort to prepare your waste materials properly.

Your diligence helps to protect the environment and conserve valuable resources.
