The non-profit organization of PaintCare Inc. represents paint manufacturers to plan and operate paint stewardships in the United States and jurisdictions that pass paint stewardship laws. PaintCare enables the Santa Clarita community a location to drop off their unused and old paint so it can be sorted and managed for reuse, recycling, energy recovery, or safe disposal. This helps the Santa Clarita community in hopes that residents are not dumping these materials down their sinks, local sewers, or just throwing them in the garbage.
Paint Recycling In Santa Clarita
The group helps communities recycle old materials that can be considered hazardous to the environment if they are not disposed of properly. Local communities need locations to drop off these materials as they can be very detrimental to the natural habitat such as plants, wild life and the community. You may not realize the effect that these materials have on the community and those living in it. Preserving the environment is key to the success of an organization such as PaintCare.
PaintCare sites accept house paint and primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings, but do not accept aerosols, solvents, and products intended for industrial or non-architectural use. The products that they accept are referred to as PaintCare products or architectural paint and they must be in containers that are no larger than 5 gallons in size. Paint must be in original container and the paint must have the original manufacturer’s printed label and a secured lid to be accepted at a retail drop-off site. They cannot accept open or leaking cans.
Santa Clarita does participate in this as they want their residents of the community to be aware of these sites. It can be done very easily to recycle the old paint and cans that might be stored in a garage, shed, or in the attic of your home. They do not want their local landfill bombarded by anymore unused paint and paint cans that could be recycled.
