GreenSheen latex paint recycling and the Take it Back Network

With a lack of progress in the Washington legislature towards a statewide producer responsibility system since 2012, as an interim step, King County initiated in 2018 a for-fee latex paint recycling service partnership with GreenSheen and local stores via the Take it Back Network.

GreenSheen recently opened a latex paint recycling facility in Kent, and, in addition to those in King County, has partner locations in Bellingham, Longview, Olympia, Anacortes, and Friday Harbor. The first latex paint recycling event ever held in King County will be April 14, 2018 in Kirkland, WA, at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology.
