To use the PaintCare program for oil-based paint, a business must qualify as an exempt generator under federal and any analogous state hazardous waste generator rules. Please visit www.paintcare.org/VSQG for more information on exempt generator rules. If your business does not qualify as an exempt generator, it will not be able to use the program for oil-based paint, but it can still use the program for latex products.
DURING THE EVENT, YOU MUST:
- Remain in your vehicle.
- Unlock your vehicle’s trunk to allow event staff to remove the paint materials.
Participants are requested to follow the current recommendations and requirements of the CDC, local, and state health officials to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19.
Paint manufacturers created PaintCare to provide convenient places to recycle leftover paint, such as paint retail stores and paint drop-off events. To learn more or find a year-round PaintCare drop-off site near you, visit www.paintcare.org or call (855) PAINT09.
