Latex Paint recycling had been sadly missing in Washington state until very recently. For us, that meant drying old paint and then sending to a landfill where both the paint and the can will stay there for many, many years.
Fortunately, those days are over as a new latex paint recycler is now operating down in Kent. We had a few cans of our own and also took as many as our car could hold from others. That paint has likely been mixed with others and turned into paint that is as good as new. The cans have also been saved from landfills and their metal is being used for good.
We were not able to take as many cans as we would have liked so will definitely repeat this one in the future. Stay tuned for Owen’s List for more info when we have it!
