Law

The New York paint stewardship program is required by the Postconsumer Paint Collection Program Law, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo on December 16, 2019.

Draft Program Plan

PaintCare submitted a draft program plan to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation on July 1, 2020, to comply with the statutory deadline. PaintCare submitted a revised program plan with further updates in January 2021.

This draft describes the operations, outreach, and other activities of the New York paint stewardship program, but is incomplete due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for regulatory changes to allow for paint collection at retail stores and other sites. Additional information including drop-off site operational guidelines, targeted annual paint collection rate, and the proposed fee structure, will be included in the final program plan.

State Agency

The oversight agency for the New York paint stewardship program is the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
