PaintCare Washington recycling paint

The long awaited statewide paint producer responsibility program operated by PaintCare, enacted in 2019, and overseen by the Dept. of Ecology, began April 1, 2021!
Since April 1, PaintCare has set up 153 drop-off locations throughout the state where the public can take unwanted paint for recycling, and collected 40,000 gallons of paint. These sites are available to households, businesses, government agencies, and others with leftover paint in Washington. The ColumbianSkagit Valley Herald, and Clark County Talk covered the new paint recycling program.
