GreenSheen is happy to announce we will be participating as an official Colorado PaintCare Partner. Beginning July 1st, 2015, common household paints, including waterborne architectural paints, primers, stains, and numerous other products can be easily and conveniently disposed of by dropping them off at GreenSheen, an approved PaintCare Drop-off Location.

On June 6th, 2014, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law Senate Bill 14-029, "Colorado Architectural Paint Stewardship Program". This law adds Colorado to a growing number of states who are taking a proactive approach to provide a convenient paint disposal program for common household paints.

Traditionally, unused paint tends to sit in garages or basement storage areas, oftentimes forgotten for many years. Beginning July 1st, 2015, Colorado residents and businesses can dispose of common household paints, including waterborne architectural paints, primers, stains, and numerous other products free-of-charge.  They can be easily disposed of by dropping them off at GreenSheen Paint Recycling.  GreenSheen is Colorado's largest paint recycling company with paint round-up events and pickup service throughout Colorado.

GreenSheen accepts house paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings (e.g., shellac and varnish) but we do not accept aerosols (spray cans), solvents, and products intended for industrial or non-architectural use.

Use of Paint Recycling Drop-Off Site by Businesses
GreenSheen will provide a recycling option for painting contractors at no cost. Contractors that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month will be able to use our drop-off recycling location for both water and oil-based products with some restrictions on quantities per month.

Businesses with at least 330 gallons of post-consumer paint may qualify to have their paint picked up at no additional cost. To learn more, call (305) 514-3955.
