When we moved into our house three and a half years ago, this is what we found in a corner of the basement:
In case you were wondering, that's 19 cans of paint and one thingy of paint thinner.
Yesterday, when I was cleaning out a section of my basement, I realized that something had to be done with these old, rusty paint cans that were never going to be used again.
A quick check on Google showed me where and when and how to drop it off.
Then it was just a matter of ordering Alex to cart all those half-full (half-empty?) paint cans to the car and Jack, Quinn, and I took 'em to the Shady Grove Solid Waste Transfer Station this morning after we dropped Sam at school.
Jack was completely excited to be taking a trip to the dump and insisted on helping me transfer the cans from the car to the hazardous materials table.
My decluttering for the day was accomplished by 9:15 a.m.
This one was really satisfying, folks.
