New paint product stewardship scheme launches

A new nation-wide paint product stewardship scheme called Paintback launched last week. The scheme is supported by key members of the paint industry and funded by a 15 cent waste levy on the wholesale price of their products.

Paintback is the first paint product stewardship scheme to accept waste paint products from commercial as well as DIY painters. Waste paint packaging is also accepted. Paint collected will be turned into an alternative fuel source or recycled.
