PAINT DISPOSAL

While oil based paint or lead paint must be taken to HAZ BIN for disposal, water-based or latex paint is not a hazardous waste. However, it must not be included with household garbage in liquid form.

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.

Good, usable latex paint can be dropped off at the following locations:
