WASHINGTON – PaintCare celebrates 10 years of providing consumer education and recycling opportunities for households, businesses and institutions that purchase paint, stain, and varnish for use in their projects and operations. PaintCare, the national nonprofit organization created by paint manufacturers to operate paint stewardship programs in states that have passed paint stewardship laws, provides a convenient network of locations where the public can recycle postconsumer or leftover paint, stain and varnish.“I am proud of the energy, time, and resources that paint manufacturers and the American Coatings Association have invested in addressing management of leftover paint, providing a needed service to the public and passing a significant savings to local governments.” Andy
