Regent Paints Collection Recycling Program
Offers the most convenient and environmentally-friendly way for anyone to dispose of any unused or unwanted latex paint. Simply bring any containers of unused or unwanted latex paint to any one of our numerous local Regent Paints Collection Recycling Program collection centers, and we do the rest!
What becomes of Recycled Paints ?
100 % of all paint we collect will become recycled and renewed.
Some paint is reprocessed into new products, such as recycled paint or concrete, and some paint is sent to charitable organizations who re-blend it and make it available to many under-funded communities in the USA and abroad. All containers are sent to specified, environmentally-friendly industries for recycling.
Paint, as a product, is chemically-friendly, UNLESS
it comes in direct contact with the environment due to improper disposal.
Did you know ?
That Illinois households alone use an estimated 12.7 million gallons of paint per year, producing 1.4 million gallons of waste ?
That dumping Latex Paint down the drain adversely affects our water supply and can cause water-treatments to be more costly and less effective ?
That it is estimated, across the country, the average household has 3-5 gallons of unused or unwanted paint available for disposal?
Recycling one gallon of paint could save 13 gallons of water, 1 quart of oil, and 250,000 gallons of water pollution, 13.74 pounds of CO2,save enough energy to power the average home for 3 hours, or cook 6 meals in a microwave oven, or blow dry someone's hair 27 times ?
