Waste Facilities

Partner with PaintCare

PaintCare welcomes partnerships with waste collection facilities in states with a PaintCare program, especially those that operate household hazardous waste collection programs, transfer stations, recycling centers, and landfills. PaintCare covers costs for paint storage bins, paint transportation and recycling, and public outreach and education.

For programs that wish to offer services to PaintCare in addition to serving as a drop-off site, monetary compensation may be negotiated. These services include reprocessing paint at your site, bulking paint in situations where storage space is limited, offering usable paint in original containers to the public (paint reuse programs), and transportation from government-run satellite locations to a main site.

New York HHW Webinars

HHW programs in New York are encouraged to view our webinars about the PaintCare program that began May 1, 2022:

PaintCare Contracting 101 for Government-Staffed HHW Programs
This webinar is designed for HHW programs that use their own local government staff for collecting paint at their HHW sites and/or events. PaintCare provided an overview of the contracting process with a focus on important liability concepts in the PaintCare contract, such as indemnification and insurance. PaintCare also discussed its approach for partnering with the local government’s preferred HHW service provider to pick up paint from the HHW program’s sites and events.

PaintCare Contracting 101 for HHW Programs Operated by Third-Party Service Providers
During the webinar, PaintCare provided an overview of the contracting process for situations where a local government HHW program has contracted its operations to a private operator and addressed what is needed from contracted operators to allow their local government customers to take advantage of the PaintCare program. PaintCare also outlined its requirements for entering into a waste hauling/processing relationship with PaintCare, which is often of interest to private operators/haulers whose local government customers wish to participate in the PaintCare program.

Resources for PaintCare Partners

Joint Outreach Projects

Local governments that partner with PaintCare may request funding for pre-approved joint outreach activities to promote paint drop-off sites and events, including your own. Eligible projects include digital and social media campaigns, newspaper advertising, direct mail, radio, and more.

Reuse Program Compensation

PaintCare encourages household hazardous waste programs, reuse stores, and others to operate paint reuse programs. Reuse programs return good quality unused paint to the local community at low or no cost. Reuse is a preferred method of waste management. To encourage reuse, PaintCare will compensate paint drop-off sites operating a reuse program under a contract with PaintCare.
