Latex Paint Waste Management in Iowa

Household Hazardous Waste Collection / Solid Waste Management Facilities / Paint Recycling Programs - Paint Reuse Exchange

Many Iowa Hazardous Waste Collection agencies provide recycling services and waste collection events of recyclable products. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calculates that annually nearly 70 million gallons of paint are left over in the United States. Local Iowa communities and municipal agencies have historically managed leftover paint waste either through household hazardous waste (HHW) facilities or through solid waste management programs. Neither of these paint waste disposal methods resolve the increasing costs of disposal and landfill environmental hazards.

At GreenSheen, they have developed a cost-effective, environmentally sound, and feasible latex paint waste reduction program that can be applied to Iowa city and county landfill and Solid Waste Management Facilities.

GreenSheen operates latex paint waste management programs for municipal communities in Iowa providing disposal options that are environmental friendly and cost-effective recycling. They offer Iowa municipal agencies the opportunity to reduce their solid waste disposal and landfill costs with the added benefit of reducing their yearly paint procurement expenses. The paint recycling and reuse program recycles paint waste collected from households and remanufactures the leftover paint into new paint for local residents and municipal use. The program turns the thousands of tax dollars which are spent each year disposing of latex paint into cost-savings for Iowa communities and taxpayers.

Efficient recycling reuse programs in Iowa keeps paint waste out of county landfills. The Three R's: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reuse provides an excellent, environmentally-preferred alternative to other waste management methods. Landfill reduction, recycling and reuse programs reduce the high costs of managing latex paint disposal. The environmental friendly solution ensures paint waste doesn’t end up in local county landfills or in sewer systems.

GreenSheen welcome partnerships with Iowa municipal agencies, household hazardous waste collection programs, solid waste management facilities, county and private landfills. They work with Iowa non-profit community organizations, school districts, painting contractors, construction sites and environmentalists to encourage green recycling and proper disposal of latex paint.
