GreenSheen® Paint

A Pioneer and Leader in Renewables, Latex Paint Recycling

Producers of Eco-Friendly Premium Latex Paint

GreenSheen Paint, headquartered in Colorado, is a pioneer and leader in the field of renewables and recycling of latex paint. GreenSheen collects water-based paint products and through a proprietary process produces premium architectural grade paint.

GreenSheen paint was founded in 2010 in Englewood Colorado with the purpose of addressing the historic and ongoing problem of latex paint waste that was destined for the landfills. Since its inception GreenSheen’s commitment has been steadfast in providing a sustainable alternative for latex paint waste. The recent expansion into the Arizona market further demonstrates its commitment to making a difference in communities across the country.

Our beginning, founded on proprietary technology. Our founder Kevin Callahan started the company six years ago after going to the Boulder County Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF) where he asked if he could have their latex paint. They were more than happy to give it to him otherwise they would be shipping it to the local landfill. Kevin transported the paint in the back of his pickup truck to his home, where he developed our proprietary methodology to recycle latex paint into a premium quality architectural grade paint that could then be sold to contractors and consumers. Now six years later we have a 20,000 square foot state of the art paint recycling facility in Denver. More than 4 million pounds of paint prevented from going into Colorado landfills to date In 2016 alone we will collect well over two million pounds of paint from Colorado residents and businesses. The collected paint will be separated, mixed, and blended along with proprietary steps and ultimately packaged as our GreenSheen-branded architectural grade premium paint.

Today we sell our GreenSheen-branded paint through a network of approximately 125 wholesalers across the country. We also sell it from our Factory Store on W. Dartmouth Avenue in Englewood. What I have learned so far and why GreenSheen is special. Every day people come to our facility to drop-off paint. They never need an appointment and there is no charge. Without exception everyone leaves pleased. First, they are happy to get the paint out of their basements and garages and they are equally pleased there was no charge for the service. Just as importantly they are pleased to learn that the paint will be recycled. Often I am asked, “What do you do with all the paint?” I tell them about our process and the fact that it will all be recycled and re-used.

Our Business Model and Growth Plans for the Future. What our founders Kevin Callahan and his partner Jeff Hyatt, who runs our sales operation, achieved over the last six years validates our recycling business model. We have proven that you can profitably and efficiently recycle latex paint and do it at high volumes. Our next step is to replicate our paint recycling facilities across the country. We plan to open 50 paint recycling facilities across the US over the next seven years.
