Recycle Your Remodel?
We don’t often think about recycling centers when it comes to remodeling, but in a world where there’s a growing consciousness regarding waste, in particular electronic waste, you need to get hip to the recycling tip. In fact, in some areas, it’s essential that you dispose of materials properly. Let’s look at some of the basic rules on recycling when remodeling.
Paint RecyclingWe’ve all done it. We’ve bought paint and used about 80% of it when it comes to a remodel. Then we keep the excess paint lying around for months, even years. Sometimes those old cans of paint accumulate and you’ve got a collection of misfit hues and tones. How do you get rid of it and even solvents, like thinners and strippers?
Latex paints are the only paints that can be recycled. Water based paints cannot. Leftover water based paint can be air-dried, add kitty litter or newspaper to quicken it's drying time. Then the latex paint can be disposed of in your regular trash. The paints can be brought to a local household hazardous waste center. You can do a web search to find centers in your area.
Once the paint is taken in, it’s shipped to one of three major recycling centers in California, Oregon and Nevada. This is part of the Paint Product Stewardship Initiative. Recycling one gallon of paint results in the saving of thirteen gallons of water.

Remodeling with Repurposed Materials
When it’s time to give your home a facelift with a remodeling project, you might not have to look further than a plastic Coke bottle or a pile of old notebooks for help.
The soda bottle that you throw away today might just be the insulation that keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer tomorrow. The pieces of glass at your local dump can turn into new kitchen countertops.
Repurposed or recycled building materials come in all shapes and sizes. In addition to helping keep our environment less polluted, using repurposed materials for home remodeling can actually make your home like Steve Austin, “The Six Million Dollar Man” – bigger, better, faster and stronger.
Insulation in a Bottle Plastic is a staple in every kitchen. Two-liter soda bottles, peanut butter jars and milk cartons are in refrigerators, pantries and kitchen cupboards. Plastic is an excellent repurposed material for home remodeling projects. Plastic bottles that are thrown out...
