Paint disposal can be a real pain. If you’ve got stacks of tins sitting in your garage, don’t delay, get rid of them right away with a rubbish removal service.

Why Is Paint Disposal Such a Hassle?

Paint is a highly toxic substance and should be disposed of responsibly. It contains poisonous chemicals such as solvents and metals that pose a threat to humans and the environment if not taken care of properly. Pouring paint down the drain is extremely irresponsible and can have catastrophic environmental repercussions (that’s why it’s illegal!)

Not only can paint poison our water if poured down the drain, it can also poison the earth if dropped off at landfill. Paint will eventually seep into the earth (and any surrounding water tables) and contaminate it.

For these reasons and more, dumping paint in your weekly rubbish collection is not allowed. Paint can only be disposed of by these services if it has completely dried out. If there is only a very small amount left in your tin you can pour this into an absorbent material like newspaper or kitty litter, then dispose of the tin.
