HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The 2011 Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program will open July 30th and run through December 3rd. This is free to Hamilton County Residents only.

There are two new locations this year.

Latex Paint

Latex paint is not hazardous and can be safely thrown away with your regular trash once it is solid. Simply leave the lid off and mix in sand, sawdust, or kitty litter to speed up the process. Once it is solid, place the can next to your trash with the lid off so your waste hauler can see that it is dry.

Reduce waste by only purchasing the volume of paint you will need.
