When disposing of medicine, make sure to follow the FDA’s guidelines. Paint is another item that needs to be carefully disposed of. Consider donating leftover paint nonprofit organizations or charities–give them a call to see if it’s something they can use. If not, the paint will need to be evaporated and solidified before collection by your local waste management authority. Call 1-800-CLEANUP for more information. Any document that contains any personal information (like all of your receipts) should be shredded, not thrown away.
