PaintCare is a non-profit organization that operates paint recycling programs on behalf of manufacturers in states that pass paint stewardship laws. PaintCare provides drop-off sites where households and businesses can recycle paint for free. The program is funded by a small fee on the sale of new paint in those states. GreenSheen has worked extensively with the PaintCare program in Colorado, which has been in place since 2015, and Washington, which began in 2021. Arizona does not have a paint stewardship law. PaintCare was created by the American Coatings Association (ACA), the trade association of the paint manufacturing industry. The ACA supported the passage of the nation’s first paint stewardship law in Oregon and formed PaintCare in 2009. Learn more about PaintCare and check availability in your area at
