How to Dispose of Old Nail Polish

There are special guidelines when throwing away paint to prevent contamination of soil and water sources. For instance, a can latex paint needs to be a solid, not liquid, to be thrown in the trash. The paint can should be opened to allow the liquid to evaporate. The can is okay to put in the trash when the paint is dried.

We don't think about it, but nail polish is paint. Most of us just toss an old unwanted bottle of nail polish in the trash. This creates the possibility of contamination of soil and water if the bottle is broken in a landfill. Here is what we need to do:

1. Pour the polish out of the bottle on to a paper towel and let it dry.

2. Leave the top off of the polish bottle to allow the polish remnants to harden.

3. Once the polish is all dry, the paper towel and polish bottle can be tossed safely in the trash.


It's an easy way to help protect our environment everyday.


Have a Beautiful Earth Day!
