Local Color Paint
Paint a Brighter Future for Vermont!
CSWD recycles about 25% of the latex paint collected through its hazardous waste program. Every can of leftover paint collected from area businesses and residents is inspected for quality and sorted by color. Selected paint is re-blended, double filtered, and poured into 5-gallon (whites only) and 2-gallon pails. The result? Local Color Premium re-blended latex paint!
Our paint can be applied with a brush, roller or paint sprayer. It is very durable, can be washed and scrubbed, and usually covers in one coat.
**Please Note:** Hardened latex paint is not recyclable. If you have hardened latex paint it can be disposed of with your regular household trash. Because they are predominantly water-based, latex paint and other latex products are not considered hazardous.
Buying Local Color
Local Color is available in both interior and exterior grades, all in matte finish.
Local Color is re-blended from other paint so the colors vary from batch to batch. Be sure to purchase enough for the job!
Local Color costs less than half the price of new paint — just $8 – $9 per gallon, depending on color and quantity purchased. Using Local Color saves you money.
2-gallon buckets: $16 (colors) – $18 (white)
5-gallon buckets: $42 (white only)
At the Depot, we accept cash and checks drawn on Vermont banks only; no credit/debit cards.
