Minnesota paint recycling program recycles 1 million gallons of old paint in first year


Minnesota's new paint-recycling program far exceeded expectations as the public, the state and retail stores helped collect more than 1 million gallons of old paint during its first full year.

The Minnesota Architectural Paint Stewardship Program collected and processed more than 1 million gallons of old paint in the program's first full year, July 1, 2015, to June 30, according to a report released Monday by the nonprofit administrator PaintCare.

That is 26 percent more than expected, said Steve Pincuspy, program manager in Minnesota for PaintCare, which administers the program for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).
