PaintCare Celebrates 10 Years of Success Recycling Leftover Paint in California!

A few weeks ago, PaintCare celebrated a milestone anniversary of 10 years of recycling paint in California! ACTenviro’s paint recycling team partners with PaintCare to execute collection and giveaway events across multiple states. “33.5 million gallons of unused paint from CA household, business, and institutions. Collected paint is managed according to highest best use. Most is recycled into new paint, while some is made available for immediate reuse or turned into something new…today 99% of Californians have easy drop-off locations for leftover paint near their home” (PaintCare).
