Colorado lawmaker won’t be asked to watch paint dry, but they will see a bill to reycle those old paint cans in the basement. The Colorado Association for Recycling and the industry are working on a bill to create an industry-based paint recycling program.
“The goal is to set up a system making paint industry responsible for collecting and dealing with – 10% of paint in US that isn’t used,” said Hillary Collins, Colorado recycling association. “Disposing of paint is often left up to municipalities. It is a cost.”
