Paint And Stain Recycling At Estes Recycles Day June 8 By: Timothy Stolz, Bestway Painting
We do our best to put to use all products that can be salvaged. We save good latex paint and usable stain for low-income, senior and non-profit projects. Ninety-five percent of what we recycle is picked up by Paint Care Colorado and hauled to Denver. Latex products can be re-mixed if usable, or re-made into road base and other useful products. Oil and stain products can be re-mixed, refined, reused, or if bad, used as a fuel supplement at area coal-fired power plants. We collect our own used mineral spirits and what is brought to us for recycling, then take a truck load to the hazardous waste facility in Fort Collins once a year at our expense. We do accept spray-can paint, although there is no good resource for it to be recycled. We assemble one load a year and take it to Fort Collins, at our expense. We would rather provide this service to our community than have these products disposed of improperly. The really cool thing about paint stains of all kinds, mineral spirits, varand stain recycling is that once recycled, nish, log oils, lacquer, turpentine, lacitâ€™s gone forever! Done! Gone!
