Latex paint can be recycled at participating hardware stores such as the Palatine Ace Hardware located at 239 East Northwest Highway 847-358-8100.
Latex paint that is completely dried up can be disposed of as refuse. Mix paint with an absorbent material such as kitty litter, sand, or saw dust until no liquid is present. Place dried cans at the curb for collection with the lids off.
