Due to COVID-19 and limited staff, the latex paint recycling program has been suspended until further notice. 

Good, usable, latex paint can be recycled!

Drop off your usable, latex paint and it will be sorted by color and re-blended by Habitat ReStore. The paint is then sold at Louisville Habitat ReStore locations for $13 per gallon. This money goes right back into our community by supporting Habitat for Humanity’s mission to create housing solutions for qualified families in Louisville. Learn more about latex paint recycling here.

  • If there is only a small quantity of paint in the can, remove the lid and let stand in a well-ventilated area away from children or pets until dry. 
  • Containers with dried latex paint may be placed in tightly sealed plastic bags and placed in garbage containers for pickup. The lid may be recycled.
  • Oil based paint or lead paint must be taken to Haz Bin for disposal.
