In accordance to Public Act 11-24, an act establishing a Paint Stewardship program in Connecticut, the New Haven Solid Waste and Recycling Authority encourages New Haven residents and citizens across the State to take their leftover, unwanted, unusable, or unsalable paint to a participating paint recycler near you.
It’s more convenient than ever to recycle paint in Connecticut. Since the start of the Connecticut paint stewardship program in July 2013, PaintCare has set up 146 drop-off sites where the public can take unwanted, leftover paint for recycling. Most of these sites are at paint retailers (paint and hardware stores) that have volunteered to take back paint, and they are available to any household and businesses in Connecticut. These stores accept paint whenever they are open for business.
