Council Member Dave Martin and the City of Houston will be holding a Batteries, Oil, Paint (latex only) and Antifreeze (B.O.P.A.) mobile collection event to help residents safely dispose of items in their home that are hazardous and should not be placed in garbage or recycling carts. If they enter the landfill, they pose as a threat to the environment, including our local watershed.

This is a nice event and good time to get rid of old paint you may have sitting around but will never use. Note that they don't take oil based paint (alkyds). I found out when I had a couple gallons there last year...
 
Edited to add: There are water-based acrylic alkyd paints now but they don't take those either.

@KingwoodDotCom : And, they are also hosting a drug take back that day. So, any drugs that you all want to get rid of (they are not supposed to be put in the trash or down the drain), can be brought to this event, too! The junk man will be there to take any old appliances off your hands, too.

You can also drop off old meds any time at the CVS up front by Spec's. They have a locked drop box next to the pharmacy and the meds dropped inside are sent to be incinerated. Bottles of liquid medications need to be sealed inside a plastic bag in case the bottle leaks.
