Disposing of Paint the Right Way In order to save tax dollars the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) will no longer collect paint at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection. Oil-based paint should be saved for special Tipton County collections. Latex paint, however, is not a hazardous waste but instead is a nuisance waste. It can be placed in the regular trash once it is dry. Latex paint in the liquid form will splatter when compacted by the trash truck creating an unsightly and unfortunately, a permanent mess on the street. Click here for simple directions to properly solidify any leftover latex paint and “Stop the Splat”.
