Can I Recycle Paint?

By November 23, 2018 No Comments

The short answer is YES!

Paint contains chemicals such as solvents and metals that can contaminate our groundwater and have negative effects on human health.

Paint recycling reduces these impacts as well as the costs associated with hazardous-waste disposal. Companies like Paintback which is a not-for-profit organisation take unwanted paint and it’s packaging and responsibly dispose of it or reuse it! So why not declutter your garage and save the planet at the same time. Since launching in May 2016, Paintback has collected and treated over 6 million kilograms of paint and packaging.
