We’ve received a new shipment of Amazon Select Paints! It comes in a variety of beautiful colors, it’s a quality product, and it’s cheaper than paint from the big-box retail stores!  And of course, proceeds from your purchase will support Community Forklift’s work to turn our waste stream into a resource stream for local communities.

Using patented technology, Amazon Select Paints recycles surplus paint collected from local businesses, consumers, and governments. The manufacturer’s reprocessing system guarantees that every gallon sold meets strict specifications for color, gloss, viscosity and coverage.


  • Amazon Select latex paint
  • 20 beautiful and consistent colors
  • interior or exterior applications on drywall, wood, stucco, or masonry
  • low-sheen finish (between a flat and an eggshell)
  • washable and scrubbable
  • $20 per gallon, $68 per five-gallon

This environmentally-responsible paint is available at the reuse warehouse, open every day from 12 to 5 pm. You can also find a selection of colors online in the Community Forklift Marketplace!


Every time you donate or shop at Community Forklift, you’re helping us lift up local communities through reuse.  We turn the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historical materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
