Q829
Does the City collect leftover paint?

Yes! Remove the paint can's lid and let paint dry or add kitty litter to solidify it before setting it out for collection. This avoids spillage and keeps streets clean. We encourage you to ask friends and neighbors if they can use your extra paint before you decide to dispose of it.
