Disposing of unwanted paint

Never dispose of unwanted paint by pouring it down household or stormwater drains. Water-based paints can be treated with Dulux Envirosolutions Waste Paint Hardener. This product turns the liquid paint into a solid mass, which can then be placed in household waste. The can, once emptied, can be placed in household recycling bins. Unwanted solvent-based paints can be disposed of by pouring the excess onto an absorbent material such as kitty litter, cardboard or shredded paper. Allow to dry and dispose with your normal household waste collection. For the disposal of larger quantities of paint, contact your local council.
