How do I get rid of paint?

Water-based or latex paint is not a hazardous waste and therefore can be included with household garbage, however not in liquid form.   Remove lids and fill cans with absorbent material such as sand or kitty litter and completely dry out.  Containers of dried latex paint (without lids) can be placed curbside or in tightly sealed plastic bags on your 2nd trash day of the week.  
Oil or lead based paint must be taken to MCIA's Household Chemical and Electronics Waste Disposal Day.
