 NJ State Senate Passes the Architectural Paint Stewardship Act

On May 18, 2015, the New Jersey State Senate passed the “Architectural Paint Stewardship Act” that was introduced over a year ago. This bill will make it necessary for all architectural paint manufacturers to have an approved paint stewardship program by New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection. This program is used to promote recycling and environmentally-friendly disposal practices of post-consumer paint.

Manufacturers selling in the state will now be responsible for providing paint collection spots around the state for paint disposal. Because they are accountable for the funding, Manufacturers will be obligated to increase the cost of paint for retailers and ultimately consumers.
