Fee and Funding

PaintCare programs are funded by a fee (referred to as the PaintCare fee) which is applied to the purchase price of new paint sold in the state. There is no charge for dropping off paint at a PaintCare drop-off site. The PaintCare fee is not a tax or a deposit. The fee funds all aspects of the paint stewardship program. For more information on the fee, visit the PaintCare Fee Page.

The fee in California is based on container size as follows:


Half pint or smaller


Larger than half pint up to smaller than 1 gallon


1 Gallon


Larger than 1 gallon up to 5 gallons

On October 31, 2021, a proposal for a fee reduction was submitted to California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) as part of a proposed revision to PaintCare’s program plan for the California paint stewardship program. Following approval by CalRecycle, it is anticipated that the fee reduction will take effect on or after July 1, 2022.

The proposed fee in California is based on container size as follows:


Half pint or smaller


Larger than half pint up to smaller than 1 gallon


1 gallon up to 2 gallons


Larger than 2 gallons up to 5 gallons
