Do I need to do anything special for disposal of paint?
Latex and water-based paints are safe to put in the green bags. The paint should be left open and outside (or well-ventilated area) during dry weather. Once dry, it is easily discarded in the green bag.

For any additional questions, feel free to call the Division of Waste Management between 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 631-283-5210.
