The goal of The Paint Exchange, LLC is to provide an environmentally friendly
paint product, using locally sourced post-consumer materials. Many people do not know how to
dispose of latex paint responsibly. Furthermore, most municipal waste facilities do
not accept latex paint for disposal in liquid form. We offer an alternative to the
unnecessary and environmentally damaging disposal of latex paint while providing
an economical, eco-friendly, high quality product. Keep it local. Keep it green.
About us and what we do
The Paint Exchange was founded by two women with backgrounds in
painting, design and biochemistry who recognized a need to make use of surplus paint (which
according to The Product Stewardship Institute amounts to over 65 million gallons a
year in the US). Anyone looking to dispose of their leftover latex paint properly and
responsibly can bring their paint to our facility. We charge a small fee for paint drop-off
which covers the recycling of all empty cans.
