A Fresh Coat of Paint Goes A Long Way


  • More than 1.57 billion gallons of paint are sold in the United States each year.
  • Roughly 65 gallons of paint are discarded in the United States each year.
  • Latex paint is recyclable, but oil-based paints are considered hazardous waste and should be disposed of by a qualified waste management organization. All paint should be properly eliminated to avoid contamination of public utilities.Once a month a typical Saturday morning for Team Faith is collecting building materials needed to rehab community projects and restore communities in need.Building on Faith is proud to be supported by Baker Paint. Our partnership will continue to improve communities while recycling in an effort to reduce the number of gallons that are discarded each year. As a result of the Baker Paint’s donation, we have collected more than 500 gallons of paint. To learn more about how to become a community partner or donate materials to OUR MOVEMENT please send all inquiries to For project submission and paint requests please submit a Project Submission Form located on the Home Page.
