ORS is a FREE recycling center for all latex and oil-based paint and stains!!

Washington’s paint stewardship law requires the paint manufacturing industry to develop a financially sustainable and environmentally responsible program to manage post-consumer architectural paint.

The program includes education about buying the right amount of paint, tips for using up remaining paint, and setting up convenient recycling locations throughout the state.

Paint manufacturers established PaintCare, a nonprofit organization, to run paint stewardship programs in states with applicable laws. See paint items that can be dropped-off for free at ORS/The Exchange.
