Recycled Paint - re-coat

Raise your hand if you have cans of old paint in your garage and you have no idea what to do with them! Well, join the club. The previous owners of our house left us with stacks of old paint and we've been trying to figure out what to do with it for years (well, we've also lazily been ignoring it, too.) I really didn't want it to go into a landfill, and there wasn't enough of one color to donate to something like Habitat for Humanity. I had almost given up hope, when I came across this website... and found out they were right in my hometown! Re-Coat takes old paint and recycles it into new paint that people can buy! The new paint comes in really nice designer colors and it's inexpensive, too. We loaded up the car and took it over to RepcoLite, a local paint company that is currently selling Re-Coat. They'll take any amount in any color unless it's rancid. We even got a dollar voucher for every can of paint we donated that we can use if we ever want to buy a can of Re-Coat paint ourselves. Good deal. If you live in West Michigan, go check them out!


  1. You seem like one cool chick! Thanks for the 411 on the paint recycling. Your info is going in my "recycle" file.

  2. Thanks for the post plugging our recycling program! We're excited to have a means of helping our customers with their leftover paint--while at the same time, keeping it out of landfills! Thanks again for the plug!
