Paint Stewardship Program

America Recycles Day is November 15th. When it comes to recycling we often think of bottles and cans but recycling is much more than that!

On July 1, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection implemented a product stewardship program authorized by Public Act 11-24.

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


America Recycles Day - November 15

The Town of Groton recycles many different items at the Flanders Road Transfer Station including electronics.

Year round, the Flanders Road Residential Transfer Station accepts consumer electronics from Town residents at no charge if they bring in seven (7) or less units. After 7 units, the disposal cost is $10 per unit. The Transfer Station is open Wednesday through Saturday 8 am to 4 pm.
