Many common household products contain chemicals that could easily ignite or explode if not disposed of properly. These toxic chemicals can have adverse effects on people, animals, plants, and fish; therefore, they require special care when being disposed of.

Williamson County and Waste Management host HHW collection events twice a year for residents of Williamson County. Details at Williamson County HHW.
Open the can to let the paint dry. Adding cat litter speeds up the process.
Once the paint is completely dry, you may dispose of it and the can with your regular household trash.
|1. Determine the total square feet (sq ft) of each area to be painted:||Example:|
|For each wall, multiply the height by the width:||10 ft. x 12 ft. = 120 sq ft (one wall)|
|For each ceiling, multiply the length by the width:||15 ft. x 12 ft. = 180 sq ft (one ceiling)|
|2. Add up the total sq ft for all walls and ceilings to be painted:||120 sq ft + 180 sq ft = 300 total sq ft|
3. Determine gal of paint needed for one coat (divide total sq ft by 400):
|300 sq ft / 400 = .75 gallons|
