Disposal of Household Hazard Waste in Landfills

To protect groundwater resources, Kentucky enacted stringent design standards for all contained landfills operating after July 1, 1995. Designs include impermeable clay liners, leachate collection systems and groundwater monitoring systems. Since all operating landfills meet these stringent standards, household hazardous waste can be disposed with other household garbage. However, household hazardous waste products should be recycled whenever possible and some wastes require special handling before disposal.

Paint Disposal

Paint Disposal: Paint is not a hazardous material. If dry, paint can be placed with your normal trash collection. To dry your paint, use an absorbent, such as sawdust, cat litter, or paint crystals.

Step 1: Stir in absorbent. Place in a safe area with the lid off, as drying takes several days.
Step 2: Stir once per day until dry.
Step 3: Place with your normal trash, with the lid off.
