PaintCare™ represents the paint industry’s commitment to environmentally sound and cost-effective, end-of-life management for leftover paint, which is fully funded by the producers (100 per cent).
PaintCare™ was an early adopter of a circular economy approach for leftover, post-consumer paint. Product stewardship is a product-centred approach to environmental protection. It calls on those in the product lifecycle—manufacturers, retailers, users, and disposers—to share responsibility for reducing the environmental impacts of products.
Product stewardship is NOT a principle for merely shifting the cost burden for a product’s end-of-life management to producers. Producers establish end-of-life management programs for their products by financing and operating their own private, market-based systems governed by legislation in local jurisdictions.
Product Care’s operates paint recycling programs for CPCA members in Ontario, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick & PEI.
