Californians generate millions of gallons of leftover paint each year.  Prior to the passage of the California Paint Stewardship Law, AB 1343, the only way for residents to properly manage their leftover paint was through local, taxpayer-funded household hazardous waste (HHW) programs.  Historically, paint has represented almost one-third of the material collected through local HHW programs and costs local government millions of dollars to manage.

The paint take-back program is designed and managed by PaintCare Inc., a nonprofit organization created by paint manufacturers to fulfill their responsibilities under paint stewardship laws.  The take-back program will be funded through an assessment collected on the purchase of new paint sold in California allowing for free disposal and recycling to residents.  For additional information please go to www.paintcare.org.
