Recycle Paint

Recycle paint at the Skagit Habitat Store.

Containers must be five gallons or smaller, and some types of paint are not accepted. Make sure all containers of paint have lids and original labels and load them securely in your vehicle. Take it to the Skagit Habitat store during donation hours and we’ll take it from there. Limit of 7 gallons of paint per week per customer.
