Paint Waste Disposal

We use paint to decorate our walls, add colour to various items, and many people enjoy painting in their spare time.

The Importance of Safe Paint Waste Disposal

Paint Contains Toxic Chemicals

Leftover paint is considered hazardous waste because it contains chemicals that can harm human health and the environment.

If paint ends up in a landfill with the rest of your general waste, then it can leak hard metals and toxic chemicals into the surrounding soil and water sources.

To protect the environment and public health, paint needs to be treated as hazardous waste and disposed of responsibly to minimise the risk.

Liquid Waste Cannot be Put in Landfills

However, the chemicals in paint are not the only concern you need to address with paint disposal.

Liquid waste cannot be placed in landfills, so the paint cannot be disposed of via general waste disposal in its liquid form, even if it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.
