How to deal with paint waste

How to deal with paint waste

While working with oil paint, you create waste that is contaminated by paint. Paint cannot be disposed of in your regular trash or the sewer system, so always make sure to properly dispose of this waste to minimize your impact on the environment.

But how do you properly dispose of paint waste? In this video we will show you how to collect the waste, how to clean palettes and brushes and how to handle paint tubes.

Want to test your knowledge?

In collaboration with ELIA (the European League of Institutes of the Arts) we developed a handy tool to test and refresh your knowledge about dealing with paint waste. In the tool we included all the information from the video above, as well as a fun quiz at the end.

The tool is available in English, French, Spanish, Dutch and German.
