Paint Recycling Now Available at The Exchange

Paint Recycling at the Exchange on Orcas Island

ORS is now a recycling center for latex paint! Gather up your old, leftover, or unwanted latex paint (liquid form) and drop it off  for a small fee. No oil-based paints will be accepted. This service will be available beginning August 9, 2018.

Paint should not be mixed together and should be kept in their original containers. The cost for latex paint recycling is as follows:

Quart container = $2.00  |  Gallon container = $3.00  |  Five Gallon Container = $14.00.

The fee covers our shipping costs to GreenSheen, a paint recycling facility and maker of eco-friendly paint. GreenSheen has been a leader in renewables and the recycling of latex paint. They collect water-based paint products and use a proprietary process to create premium architectural grade paint. We hope that GreenSheen paints will be available on Orcas soon!
