latex paint recycling

An estimated 10 percent of the more than 650 million gallons of architectural paint sold each year in the United States is unused. Post-consumer paint is the largest component of local household hazardous waste collection programs and is costly to manage.

where we collect

Latex paint is collected at local paint drives, where Lehigh Valley residents drop off reusable latex paint. Once accepted, latex paint of many colors, varieties, and quantities* are brought back to the ReStore, where it is recycled and transformed into a new resellable product labelled “recolor.” By mixing already tinted paints, as opposed to tinting a base, “recolor” provides excellent coverage and durability.

* There is a 15 gallon limit per vehicle at paint drives. Please refer to the acceptability list for a list of latex paint requirements.

If you have over 15 gallons of latex paint to recycle please call to make an appointment. Contact Dani 610-776-7499 or dani@habitatlv.org.

what is ?

The Habitat LV ReStore has partnered with The Paint Exchange, LLC., of Rockland, MA. By using their process at the satellite location in the ReStore, latex paint is recycled into the product, “recolor.” “recolor” is available in over 15 colors and is a superior, high quality latex paint, that can be purchased right off the ReStore shelves.
