Latex and water-based paints, once dried out (usually 24-36 hours after the lid is removed), can be placed in a trash bag and thrown out with your regular household garbage. Therefore, latex and water-based paints will not be accepted at the S.T.O.P. collection site. Oil-based paints are considered hazardous, and will be accepted.
The town will also accept unused and unwanted pharmaceuticals.
