Vt. issues new policy for returning paint cans

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

If you buy paint you'll now have to pay a little extra for its disposal starting Thursday.

It's part of Vermont's new PaintCare Recovery Program. Americans on average don't use about 10 percent of the paint they buy and less than half of that is collected or recycled.

Under the new policy approved by lawmakers last year folks will now be able to take their unused paint to participating retailers in addition to existing hazardous household collection days. For more on the program and the fees click here.
