FREE WEBINAR: Paint Stewardship in Rural Areas FREE WEBINAR: Paint Stewardship in Rural Areas

When: April 9, 2015
From 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM EDT
Online registration is available until: 4/9/2015

Rural areas often face unique challenges with paint collection, largely because they tend to be comprised of very small, yet sprawling, populations. This can drive up transportation costs and make it difficult to establish convenient collection sites. It is also quite difficult to build infrastructure for new paint collection sites and reuse programs in rural areas, and to educate rural area residents about the new programs, particularly in states that do not have paint stewardship laws.

Featuring a diverse panel of speakers, including John Hurd, Maine and Vermont Program Manager of PaintCare, Dianne Woske, Recycling Coordinator of Fulton County Dept of Solid Waste, and Rich Backer, Special Waste Programs Coordinator of Northwest Solid Waste District, this second webinar in our series on product stewardship solutions in rural areas will explore low-cost ways to reduce paint waste—both for states with paint EPR laws and for those that are preparing to pass paint EPR laws. For states with laws, the webinar will examine requirements for rural collection, identify and resolve challenges that are unique to rural areas, explore ways to maximize material diversion, and assess options for promoting retail involvement. For states considering laws, the webinar will explore ways that rural communities can drive leftover paint to its highest and best use, examine ways these governments can prepare now for future paint legislation, and identify techniques for local governments to get their legislative priorities addressed in EPR laws.
