Contact the contractor who was working on your home if lead paint chips were left behind. By law, the contractor needs to dispose of the lead paint chips for you.
Call your city government office to find out how you are supposed to dispose of lead paint chips if no contractor was involved. Your options may include putting the waste in your trash or taking it to a municipal solid-waste landfill or a household hazardous-waste collection site.
Locate an appropriate facility in your area by asking your local government office, or using online resources, like the "State Lead Paint Abatement Tool" offered by the Environmental Compliance Assistance Program (see resource section below).
Pack up the lead paint chips in a sealable container or bag before disposing of them in your regular trash or taking them somewhere for disposal. This helps prevent them from being spread around the environment.
