Recycle Paint at the Skagit Habitat Store

We ask that all donated paint have lids, original and easy-to-read labels, and are sealed properly. All paint containers must be five gallons or smaller. We have a limit of 7 gallons of paint per customer each week. We will not accept any leaking, unlabeled, or empty containers of paint. Leftover paint is remixed into recycled paint, used as fuel, made into other products, or is properly disposed of if no other beneficial use for it can be found.
