CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Starting next month, you’ll only have to go as far as your trash can to dispose of old or unwanted latex paint.
Effective Oct. 1, Chesterfield County is introducing a new latex paint disposal process in an effort to protect the environment and reduce costs. Since latex paint is not hazardous, it can be safely disposed of in the trash once it has dried up and become solid.
To solidify your latex paint, please follow the instructions below.
Oil-based paint is considered hazardous in its liquid form and cannot be disposed of in the trash. This type of paint will only be accepted for disposal at special events held at county Convenience Centers.
