An e-mail from Kate:
Does anyone know where I can dispose of interior house paint (in an ecologically sound way) in or around the West Hollywood/West Los Angeles area? Some kind of haz-mat or paint drop-off location?

The Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County actually has a website that answers this question. They actually have a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, that gives LA county residents a legal and cost-free way to dispose of unwanted household chemicals. Click here for the website or call 1-800-238-0173 for more info.
For Orange County residents, you can call The County of Orange Integrated Waste Management Department's Household Waste Office at (714)834-6752 for locations near you. This website has other useful info for OC residents.
