Disposal of Paint Latex Paint: Remove the lids from the paint containers and soak up all paint residue with shredded newspaper or kitty litter. When all liquid is soaked up and becomes a solid mass, you can replace the lids on the container. You can dispose of the cans in a trash bag and place it out with your regular trash.
Enamel Paint: This kind of paint is considered hazardous waste. See information on how to properly dispose hazardous waste materials.
Reuse: Sandbags may be used as clean fill material for things like flower beds or a base for paving blocks, so long as they are covered with a layer of soil or other structural materials to a depth of at least 12 inches.
Don't use the sand from used sandbags to fill children's sandboxes or play grounds as bacteria in used sandbags can be harmful to children.
