The program is funded through the payment of a minimal fee at the time of purchase of new paint in NYS. “Legacy paint” that was purchased before this program went into effect in May 2022 can be dropped off at no cost. This program was created by passage of the “Postconsumer Paint Collection Program” into state law.
Visit https://www.paintcare.org to see what items are accepted, drop-off sites, and more.
Paint can also be brought to the Town of Bethlehem’s Household Hazardous Waste collection events. See the Recycling Events page for upcoming events.
