Local Color Paint
At the Depot, we also reblend high quality, leftover latex paint into Local Color, a premium-quality paint that meets Green Seal standards for environmental quality. Local Color comes in a variety of shades to choose from. Local Color is available for purchase at the Environmental Depot as well as at other retail locations.
