Paint Disposal

Latex and Oil Paint


Latex paint 

The Miami County Transfer Station accepts latex paint from residents (no businesses) for hardening and disposal.  Residents may bring up to 15 gallons per day.  It will be charged at the regular tipping fee.  

Residents may place dried paint in their regular trash. To dry out paint at home, simply remove the lid and let the paint solidify, or mix with cat litter, sawdust, or another absorbent material in the container.

When purchasing paint, help us reduce the amount of waste.  Consult with your local paint provider to properly estimate how much paint you will need.

Please do not
Dump paint on the ground or into storm sewers.
Pour paint down the drain.
Throw paint cans with liquid remaining in the trash.
