Waste Paint Reuse & Recycling

Many communities struggle with how to help residents properly manage and reduce disposal of the significant amounts of leftover latex paint they generate. During 2012 and 2013, NEWMOA collaborated with waste management authorities and a variety of stakeholders in five rural areas in Maine, Vermont, and New York to develop effective strategies to reduce, reuse, and recycle leftover latex paint.

NEWMOA and stakeholder groups worked together to develop a series of publications, including a guide for municipalities and corresponding handouts for consumers.

During the summer and fall of 2013, NEWMOA held workshops in these five locations to promote alternatives to disposal:

In December 2013, NEWMOA held a Webinar to present the results of the Project and lessons learned.
