Earth Update: Paint Problems

Painting things yourself is a good way to save money but do you know how to dispose of it properly? Most people use latex paint today, which is good because oil paint is highly toxic, but everyone still must be aware that paint isn't very environmentally friendly. Instead of washing your paintbrushes outside, rinse them in a sink. If you wash them outside, this will contaminate groundwater. Bring your extra paint to a place that disposes of hazardous waste as opposed to rinsing it all down a drain.
