Oregon Paint Care Fee Increase

19 May 2018
​PaintCare proposed to Oregon DEQ, which oversees the paint stewardship program, an increase in fees collected on cans of paint sold in Oregon.
Pending a public comment period, DEQ proposes to approve (PDF) the increase with conditions, among them that:
PaintCare must submit quarterly budget reports to DEQ
PaintCare must evaluate the fee biennially to determine whether the fee is generating sufficient, but not excessive, revenue
DEQ invited public input through May 11, 2018. Read the Oregon Paint Stewardship Program plan, annual reports, April 2018 performance audit, and more on DEQ's Paint Materials Management website. Find a PaintCare paint recycling location near you.
