Paint Recycling: More Fun Than Watching It Dry

If you’re tired of telling residents to mix their latex paint with kitty litter and dry it out -- you’ll want to attend this event!
Clark County, the only county in Washington that consistently recycles latex paint, and Stericycle will share their experiences with this challenging material. The American Coatings Association will explain their strategy to pass statewide legislation to provide sustainable funding for paint recycling programs. Participants will learn from our neighbors in Oregon about being the first state in the US to pass such legislation and launch PaintCare, which has processed over 2.8 million gallons since 2010. For the grand finale, participants will tour MetroPaint in Oregon to see how paint is sorted, batched and made back into latex paint. Then we can talk about how to make paint recycling happen in Washington!
