In the 2014 legislative session, SB029 (the Paint Stewardship bill) was introduced and passed. This bill requires paint manufacturers to implement a paint management program in Colorado that includes convenient and free locations where consumers can drop off their leftover paint and have it recycled or disposed of properly.
PaintCare Inc. is a non-profit organization established by the American Coatings Association (the trade association of paint manufacturers) to implement paint stewardship programs in the United States. With input from stakeholders, PaintCare will develop and submit a Program Plan for approval to the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (CDPHE) before the end of the year.
