Paint recycling now available at Sherwin Williams in Frisco
Residents of Frisco and Summit County now have a new, convenient option to recycle their unwanted paint at the Sherwin Williams paint retail store in Frisco, located at 699 Ten Mile Drive. Sherwin Williams is now accepting unused and unwanted latex and oil-based paints, stains and varnish at no charge.
The paint recycling program — which is available throughout Colorado — is made possible by PaintCare, a company that has 165 participating paint drop-off sites in the state. The Paintcare program has led to 1.6 million gallons of paint being recycled in the state.
Sherwin Williams in Frisco is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The store will accept all paint brands, regardless of where they were purchased. Items that can be dropped off for recycling include most house paints, primers, stains, sealers and clear top-coatings (varnish and shellac).
PaintCare will transport the collected paint from the drop-off sites to processing facilities, where it will be remixed into recycled-content paint, used as fuel, made into other products or, in the case of some unrecyclable paint, will be dried out and properly disposed. Last year, over 75 percent of all latex paint that was collected by PaintCare was used for recycled-content paint products.
