GreenSheen is happy to announce we will be participating as an official Pueblo PaintCare Partner.

There is no charge for dropping off paint at GreenSheen's PaintCare drop-off site.

PaintCare Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to represent paint manufacturers (paint producers) to plan and operate paint stewardship programs in the United States in those states that pass paint stewardship laws.

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 recycling program for common household paints.

Traditionally, unused paint tends to sit in garages, basement storage areas, or warehouses often times forgotten for many years. Beginning July 01, 2015, Colorado residents and businesses can recycle common household paints, including waterborne architectural paints, primers, stains, and numerous other products free-of-charge.  Paint can be recycled 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. There is no charge for dropping off paint at GreenSheen's PaintCare drop-off site.

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.

GreenSheen will provide a paint recycling option for Pueblo painting contractors at no cost. Pueblo 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.
