If you have several paint tins that are not empty, you can pour the paints into one tin and recycle the other ones. This also reduces the number of tins that need to be taken to the hazardous waste collection point.
Pour the remaining paint into a metal container or jar that is as large as possible.
Carefully seal metal containers containing paint and take them to the hazardous waste collection point.
Leave the emptied paint tins to dry on their side for at least 24 hours before taking them to the metal collection.
Please note: never mix different types of paint or chemicals that you are not familiar with!
Water-dilutable latex paints as well as solvent-based alkyd paints and oil paints sold to consumers can be mixed together. However, solvents used for cleaning brushes and pure linseed oil must be kept separate.
