*Latex paint can be treated so that it can be discarded on your regular trash day. Simply add some kitty litter to the leftover paint, stir with a paint stir stick and store uncovered in a safe place. After several days the paint will harden. Put the cans of hardened paint inside a trash bag along with the lids.

Need to dispose of old medications?

Bring your unwanted medication - no liquids, needles or injectable medication - to the secure drop box in the lobby at the Northville Township Police Department at 41600 Six Mile Rd.
