Habitat recycled paint
Let’s make good use of that leftover paint…
Our Habitat ReStore has a latex paint recycling program; your unused, leftover latex paint can now be professionally remixed and resold! Not only does the program provide community members a simple way to get rid of their leftover latex paint, it also provides an environmentally and economically friendly solution to a common problem. The Recycled Paint Program helps keep our community’s water supply free of potential contaminants and lowers the amount of dried latex paint going to landfills.
how does it work?
We sort the cans of paint by type (interior or exterior) and sheen (glossy, semi-gloss, satin, eggshell, and flat). The sorted paint is then inspected, shaken, filtered, and mixed in large barrels with long industrial mixers. The mixed paint is filtered for a second time and then repackaged for resale to the public.
We never know exactly what color a batch will produce, and we cannot duplicate that color, but we do provide color samples and information on each can we sell.
