    no they don't. Most stores properly dispose of all aerosol's cans.

    Has anyone ever found spray paint in the garbage?

    I just said that I saw a guy throwing away cans with no tips on them. meaning its going in the dumpster, no compactors or anything. just regular ones. I know what I saw, and all that he was throwing away were flammables in one dumpster, and miscellaneous things in another.

    Not a dumpster diver, but i'm really considering it after putting some serious thought into it. I used to work at an auto-paint shop. every car we painted we mixed a new batch of paint and there was ALWAYS leftovers. the shelves would get too clutterd with all of the excess paint so we would just throw it out. I never stole any out of the trash lol because i could always just pinch what ever colors i wanted from the shop but now my auto paint is all gone so i'm thinking of hittin up a dumpster or two.
    This shit is killer for mops, permanent, solvent based (providing the solvents used in the paint where i come from are not banned in your state/province) and thinned to prefection already. It does eat through most mops but once you find one that works your laughing. Or if you have one of those refillable spray cans this shit is killer for that too

    okay, well if your going to do this stuff-- do it right, or get the balls to rack or you could easily buy things if you get a job..

    anyhow, the store throws out ripped packages? go into the store when its opened and let it rip!! yeah. beyblades..I know im gay.

    same thing with paint. they throw out paint thats been tested/sprayed in stores? so go test out paints..obviously not all at once or anything stupid like that. use your knoggin kiddies!

    they throw away opened or damaged goods if by the end of the month no one buys it, or if they restock.
    and homedepot doesnt carry colorplace.
