To avoid sending paint brushes and rollers to the landfill, there are a few responsible methods to consider:

1. Reuse: If your paint brushes and rollers are still in good condition, they can be reused for future painting projects or even donated to someone in need. Make sure to clean them thoroughly before reusing or donating.

2. Recycle: Check with your local recycling program to see if they accept paint brushes and rollers for recycling. Some programs may require the removal of the bristles or rollers before recycling.

3. Proper disposal: If your paint brushes and rollers are no longer usable or can't be recycled, they should be disposed of as hazardous waste. Contact your local waste management facility or check for special collection events that accept hazardous waste.
