Latex paint will no longer be collected at the HHW events. Paint hardener can be purchased at Lowe’s or Home Depot in Wenatchee. One package will harden 2/3 gallon of latex and or acrylic paint and stain. Once the paint has dried into a solid instead of a liquid form in the can, you may throw it in your garbage can with the lid off. Other homemade hardeners are: kitty litter, vermiculite, soil, potting soil, dried leaves or pine needles, dry lawn clippings even shredded newspaper. You can also donate to a non-profit organization, a church, friends and or family
