Got Paint? Paint Hardener Packets now Available
As an alternative to latex/acrylic paint drop-off, IVGID Public Works is now offering free packets of Xsorb Rock Solid Paint Hardener. It is a powder you add to latex and acrylic house paint, which accelerates the process of drying out the leftover paint in the can. Once dry, the hardened paint can be disposed of in the trash. Latex paint is not technically a hazardous waste, but it can destroy the biological processes happening in the District’s wastewater treatment plant if dumped down the home plumbing drain. Latex paint recycling is only successful with full containers and is a significant program cost for the community’s Household Hazardous Waste program. So save yourself the hassle of scheduling an appointment to drop off half empty paint cans and come get the free paint hardener packets. Paint hardener packets can be picked up from the self-serve bins outside the main doors to the Public Works building or outside the Household Hazardous Waste trailer during Public Works Operating hours. View current hours of operation.
Oil based paints and paint solvents are flammable and toxic, so these should always be brought in (by appointment) for proper disposal.
