The IEPA states "At every collection, in every part of the state, paint is the most common material delivered by Illinois citizens. Today's latex (water-based) paint has a very low level of toxicity. Disposing of it at a household hazardous waste collection day is very expensive. Therefore, the Illinois EPA encourages people with unwanted latex paint to use other options.
We provide information on how to determine the type of paint you have and several options of use and disposal on our PAINT PAGE. Please take a few moments to have a look. Thank you.
