Throwing out old paint

I have some really old paint I want to throw away. Is there a product that I can add to it that causes the paint to dry up fast in the can?

If the can is full then the best thing to do is contact your land fill to find out when the next hazardest material collection day is.
If it's not full then cheap clay kitty litter will work.

Latex or oil based paint?

Generally speaking, latex can be pitched and oil based can if it has been exposed to air long enough for the top to crust

IMO it's best to give it away if it's still in usable condition. Otherwise most any method that dries the paint will work. The paint can be applied to something that is to be discarded or sand can be added to the paint. There is a product that can be added to paint to dry it out but I'm not familiar with it
