Natural Awakenings Lehigh Valley

ReColor Your World

Feb 26, 2017 03:09PM

The ReStore of Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley has introduced a new latex paint recycling program that is both greatly beneficial to our community and our environment. Recyclable latex paint is collected, mixed and sold on-site. Latex paint that meets recyclable requirements can be donated at specified locations and dates. Once accepted, latex paint of many colors and varieties are recycled and transformed into a new resellable product labeled “ReColor”. By mixing already tinted paints, as opposed to tinting a base, recolor provides excellent coverage and durability.

This program offers local residents and businesses a resource to responsibly recycle leftover or new latex paint; keeps reusable latex paint out of our waterways and landfills; makes high-quality, low-cost, latex paint easily available for purchase in our community; and contributes to funds needed for Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley to continue building homes in our neighborhoods. Volunteers are needed to assist with collection events and mixing paint.
