Mountainview Landfill does not accept liquid paint (i.e., liquid waste). However, after the paint is dry, all types of paint may be deposited into the landfill. This includes the paint itself as well as paint cans, brushes, rollers, and applicator trays.

Drying a Can of Paint

To dry a can of paint, take the lid off of the can and let the paint dry naturally to a solid consistency or, to quicken the drying process, pour the paint over kitty litter or shredded newspaper in a plastic bag lined box.
