Sustainabilty: Architectural Paint Stewardship Act

Sustainability Architectural Paint Stewardship Act SB 18-045 Oppose S. 2nd Reading Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud; Rep. Kim Ransom, R-Parker Morgan Cullen mcullen@cml.org SB 18-045 repeals the “Architectural Paint Stewardship Act” which requires paint producers to create paint recycling programs by charging assessments on retailers and distributors, who are then required to add the amount of the assessment to the purchase price of containers of architectural paint sold in Colorado. Paint products are treated as hazardous waste so this program has been vital to assist municipalities' ability to ensure paint products are disposed of properly.
