What do I do with paints and other hazardous wastes?
Hazardous wastes must not be put into the trash, poured down the drain, on the ground or in surface water. They must be carefully handled and appropriately disposed of. Therefore, the City of Nashua hosts 5 collections each year for hazardous wastes.

Latex paints and other latex-based must be dried out till they are rock solid. Once solid, the paints will not harm the landfill. Solid latex paint cannot be put into the curbside trash toters; it must be brought in plastic trash bags to the landfill for disposal.
