PaintCare, Inc. earns Golden Arrow Award by California Product Stewardship Council:

PaintCare, Inc. was one of four California companies to be honored by the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) during its 7th Annual Arrow Awards ceremony held on Aug. 9 at California Resource Recovery Association’s 40th annual conference and tradeshow at the DoubleTree hotel in Sacramento. PaintCare is the recipient of the 2016 Bow & Arrow Award for Service and Take Back.

According to a statement on the CPSC website: “This award will recognize a retail business, group of businesses, or chain that has initiated an outstanding Take Back program for one or more product as an additional convenience and service to their customers, and works with the producers of those products in developing safe storage and recovery of EOL (End of life) products and packages.” “We greatly appreciate the outstanding public education campaign promoting the paint recycling program and making it so much more convenient for Californians to drop off paint at 771 locations for recycling,” said Heidi Sanborn, Executive Director of CPSC. “This program is a model in supporting paint reuse and overall is working well in California.

We are delighted to thank PaintCare publicly for its great work!”
