Latex paint can be recycled at the Earth Day event in April at Forsyth Park. The other option is to fill the paint can with kitty litter, stir it in, and let it sit to dry. Then it can be placed into the household trash can for disposal. (leave the lids off for inspection by waste hauler staff)
The Restore on Victory will take unopened cans of paint, Craigslist may work, and the most difficult is finding a painter to take the paint.
