Default Need to get rid of open gallons of paint!

I have multiple colors and amounts of used indoor paint. I don't want to throw it away (can be done safely by letting it dry).

I am wondering if there is any place to donate this (underprivledged art studio for example) or a place that recycles it?

Anyone have any ideas?

Call Salvation Army, or Habitat for Humanity?

Paint is on the city recyclable material list (limit 28 one-gallon cans, or 3 five-gallon pails)...

Cheers! M2

San Antonio Graffiti Wipeout? I don't know if they take paint donations like this, though. Might be worth giving them a call, especially if you despise all the tagging.

If these organizations don't pan out, you could always give it away for free in the local free section on Craigslist.org:

Thanks everyone! I'm moving, in a couple days, so I don't feel like putting out adds... but I'll try some of the other places like Habitat, ect. Worst case, I can take it for recyling.
