If it’s mainly paint you have to dispose of you can get rid of unused paint in other ways:
• ‘use it up’ by offering unused paint to friends, family or online eg Freegle or Freecycle
• ‘dry it out’ by adding something absorbent, like cat litter, soil or saw dust. Once the paint is dried, you can put the paint cans in your general waste bin at home
