SANTA ANNA, CA - Behr has made a list of best practices for paint recycling. The practices give guidance to paint professionals who have surplus paint after finishing a paint job. There are a number of easy ways for professional contractors to be more efficient and eco-friendly when it comes to jobsite cleanup.
Some best practices for recycling paint after a job is complete include donating paint to local paint swap events so someone else with a need can use it. No options for donation? Use on-line resources such as Earth911.com to find local recycling centers. If disposal is the only option, contractors should always contact local waste management and environmental agencies to get advice for disposing of their paint in an environmentally friendly way. Perhaps the best advice for pros to consider is to use tools like Behr's paint calculator on behrpro.com to ensure that they order the correct amount of paint for each project.
