Title 10 : Conservation and Development

Chapter 159 : WASTE MANAGEMENT

Subchapter 004 : PAINT STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM

(Cite as: 10 V.S.A. § 6671)
  • § 6671. Purpose

    The purpose of this subchapter is to establish an environmentally sound, cost-effective Paint Stewardship Program in the State that will undertake responsibility for the development and implementation of strategies to reduce the generation of postconsumer paint; promote the reuse of postconsumer paint; and collect, transport, and process postconsumer paint, including reuse, recycling, energy recovery, and disposal. The Paint Stewardship Program will follow the waste management hierarchy for managing and reducing postconsumer paint in the order as follows: reduce consumer generation of postconsumer paint, reuse, recycle, provide for energy recovery, and dispose. The Paint Stewardship Program will provide more opportunities for consumers to manage properly their postconsumer paint; provide fiscal relief for local government in managing postconsumer paint; keep paint out of the waste stream; and conserve natural resources.
