What about paint; can I pour that down the drain?

Paint should not go down the drain. Neither should solvents, pesticides, automotive fluids including oil, or any of a range of potentially toxic products. These products can all be disposed of at the Hazardous Waste Collection Facility. Learn how to get rid of other household products that should not do down the drain on the Pollution Prevention page.
