Looking for some paint for your next project? All six Habitat Wake ReStores sell purified, recycled paint in a variety of colors and finishes! There are a lot of reasons to feel good about purchasing ReMix recycled paint: it’s environmentally friendly, it’s inexpensive and the dollars go to support Habitat Wake’s mission to build safe, affordable homes in Wake County.
Since the Fuquay-Varina ReStore began a paint recycling program in November 2015 — the only project of it’s kind in North Carolina — the store has reprocessed more than 7,000 gallons of paint that might otherwise have been put in the landfill or left to dry.The program was conceived by the ReStore management team and realized by Fuquay-Varina ReStore manager Ryan Stein and a regular ReStore volunteer, Tony Borzillo. Capitalizing on Ryan’s experience dealing with hazardous materials during his time in the military and Tony’s chemical knowledge from his work as a contractor, the two set up a paint recycling center in the back of the Fuquay-Varina store. Tony now runs the program during his three volunteer shifts each week.
