“Be original and your home will speak for itself.”
– Brett Schwebke
What’s the first thing you grab when updating a home, room, or even a piece of furniture?
You guessed it……….PAINT!
It’s a fairly affordable change so we tend to do it quite often especially if you pick the wrong color….not that I have ever done that mind you!
So…..what do you do with all that paint after you are done?
PAINT RECYCLING OREGON
- Save some for your own projects. We keep a good supply of paint that we can use for small projects.
- Check with your local disposal or recycling center to see when they take hazardous materials.
- Drop it off at your local Habitat for Humanity Restore for recycling or so it can be reused.
- Recycle it through the PaintCare Program, a non-profit organization that sorts and manages paint for reuse, recycling, energy recovery, or safe disposal.
PaintCare has set up 170 drop-off sites in Oregon where the public can take unwanted, leftover paint for recycling year round. Most of these sites are at paint retailers (paint, hardware, and home improvement stores) that have volunteered to take back paint, and they are available to any household and business in Oregon.

Now that you have put down your paint brush, be sure to check out a PaintCare facility near you to donate that paint safely and have more room in your garage.
