Guidance Manual for Paint Reuse Programs [PDF]
Abstract: This document was prepared by the Paint Product Stewardship Initiative and funded by the National Paint and Coatings Association. The purpose of the document is to encourage new paint reuse opportunities, which will ultimately reduce the volume of leftover paint that requires higher levels of management, thereby reducing the cost of a nationally coordinated system to manage leftover paint. Multiple case studies are included. This document also includes Consumer Paint Management Guidance, which outlines how to determine the amount of paint needed, how to properly store paint, as well as guidance on reuse and disposal.

St. Louis Teachers' Recycle Centers
Abstract: This is a resource for teachers that combines learning and recycling with financial savings. Teachers can take advantage of resources that are donated to the center by businesses and other community members. Businesses often generate abundances of solid waste products through overruns, discontinued items, rejects, and obsolete parts, according to the center. By donating these items to the center, they reduce their own disposal costs and improve their bottom line, while making it possible for schools to obtain creative materials for classroom use at minimal cost. They offer workshops and have a go van. Their service area is currently limited to the St Louis area of Illinois and Missouri.
