What's New with Paint?
From now on paint will be collected (for no charge) at select locations across the state. Click here to find one near you.
Thanks to the new Paint take-back recycling bill that went into effect this spring, leftover paint is now being handled by the paint industry, saving taxpayer dollars and handling that material responsibly. CVSWMD held three paint collections throughout the district this year, and we also collect paint year round at our Additional Recyclables Collection Center (ARCC) at 540 North Main Street in Barre year round. Click here for hours and directions.
