Paint Stewardship Program
This year SCRRRA will run a Paint Stewardship program during the Household Hazardous Waste Collection at the Flanders Road Transfer Station on Saturday, July 19th between 9 am and 1 pm. Residents may dispose of latex paints at the facility for this one day event only. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) implemented a product stewardship program where you pay a “disposal fee” when you purchase a can of paint. The intent is to allow for the responsible recycling of unused and leftover paint. Under this program, some retailers are providing a Paint Drop-Off location or others are funding one day collections like the one being held at Flanders Road. After the collection, the old paint is then shipped to recycling facilities where it is used to make new paint products.
Again the Household Hazardous Waste Collection and the Latex Paint Collection are scheduled for Saturday, July 19, 2014 between 9 am and 1 pm at the Flanders Road Transfer Station.
The intent is to allow for the responsible recycling of unused and leftover paint. Under this program there are already retail Paint Drop-Off locations across the state where residents can drop off unwanted paint. There is a limit to 5 gallons of paint and the material must be in the original container with the original label. Please check with your paint retailer to see if they are participating in this program.
In the Spring of 2014, the Southeastern Connecticut Regional Resource Recovery Authority will be accepting paint at their numerous Regional Household Hazardous Waste Day collections. More details will be available when the dates are released in the Spring of 2014.
So what happens to your old paint? After the collection, it is then shipped to recycling facilities where it is used to make new paint products
