    hey doods, anyone know where you can get rid of empty paint cans? i have over 70 empties in my back yard and they cant be recycled or thrown out, i took them to the dump and the guy said he cant take them because they are hazardous. Anyone else having issues with this? Help please, i want to be eco friendly about this so "dumping them on the side of I95" wont help me fellas. Thanks

    "Contact your local municipal office for specific diposal guidelines in your region." Says it right on the label, if you have like a hazardous waste center or yearly round up then those are the people you need to find if you looking to be "eco friendly".

    i finally found the bottle depot to take them to, funny thing is the fucking place is covered in graffiti. I literally dumped 3 garabge bags filled with ironlak, molotow, etc artist paint. You have to tell them what your dumping and show them your license to prove you live in the area. Am i slipping by doing this? they gotta be pissed at all the graff around them, and they could easily write my info down and tell the cops. Maybe im just paranoid. . . but the guy was looking through my bags shaking his head when i was driving off

    if they take your deets and stuff they cant prove that you use the paint illegally. i do plenty of legal work.. hell, i make a living using spraypaint as my choice of medium. i still rock illegal work but they cant arrest you unless they have proof that you use the paint illegally

    where are you from hipster? here in van, they dont ask a single thing, just tell me to throw it in the corner and be gone, even sometimes toss me a few cans of half empty paint. they can take down your details by all means, but have no right whatsoever to call the police, and if it did come to that, unless you were caught in the act they have no means to arrest you. i doubt anything will come of it, but if it does, just deny, deny, deny, because you havent broken any laws by being a good citizen and recycling your used art supplies. keep a couple canvas' kicking around if you are worried, nothin illegal about that.

    Its not like the pigs are going to call the csi to wipe for prints on used spray cans.that's dumb. Just toss the cans into a dumpster, it's not that hard.
