    Paint SLUDGE...Recycling/Disposal of?

    Can't drop it down the drain. Can't just toss it in the garbage either. What to do???

    Only heard so little of, but did see somewhere mentioned RECYCLING the leftover paint sludge from a jar of solvents, or oil.

    How does one go about conveniently disposing of leftover sludge or even recycle it? (Would be amazing if recycling it was a thing

    You can use it to tone a white canvas. If not, wipe it out with kitchen towels and dispose of them.

    Filter it out of your solvent, let it dry to the air and throw it out with your garbage.

    different countries/ states have different restrictions but Eezacque is basically correct just let it dry and throw it in the garbage in most places.
