PaintCare Program Plan

PaintCare is currently the only stewardship organization with an approved stewardship plan.


Stewardship plans define how a manufacturer or stewardship organization intends to fulfill its responsibilities under the Architectural Paint Recovery Program (AB 1343, Huffman, Chapter 420, Statutes of 2010) and communicate a course of action to stakeholders and the public. Plans will be posted at this website and must include the following information:

  • Demonstrate sufficient funding for the program, including a funding mechanism for securing and dispersing funds to cover administrative, operational, and capital costs, including the assessments of charges on architectural paint sold by manufacturers in this state.
  • Coordination of the program with existing local household hazardous waste (HHW) collection programs.
  • Goals established by the manufacturer or stewardship organization to achieve the purpose of the program, including recovery and recycling of leftover paint.
  • Education and outreach efforts.
