Don’t know what to do with all that leftover paint and unwanted chemicals? Many counties we live in accept household hazardous waste, contact your local county to properly dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste such as: paint, batteries, fire extinguishers, gas and propane tanks, photographic chemicals, thinners/strippers, vehicle fluids, fertilizers, fluorescent lights, heavy metals (silver, mercury) pesticides/herbicides, pool chemicals, varnishes/stains.
Never throw these items in with regular household waste.
Last, but not least, don’t forget to ask for help when you need it.
