What You Should Know About the Minnesota Paint Stewardship Program
Starting November 1st 2014, a small change in how paint is sold in Minnesota will make a big difference in what happens to leftover paint with the Minnesota Paint Stewardship Program.
Retailers will be required by the NEW STATE LAW to collect a small add-on fee and submit it to PaintCare, a non-profit created by the American Coatings Association to help implement the new program. PaintCare will help manage the collection of leftover paint through newly established drop-off sites. Fees are based on container size, and range from $0.35 (larger than a half-pint to less than a gallon) to $0.75 per gallon and $1.60 for larger than one gallon to five gallons.
