Source: Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, 3.5.14
Summary: In accordance with Minnesota legislation signed into law in May 2013, all architectural paint sold in the state must soon be managed through a statewide product stewardship program implemented and financed by producers of paint. Upon the slated launch date of July 1, 2014, no architectural paint may be offered for sale in the state unless the paint's producer participates in an approved stewardship plan. PaintCare Inc., serving as a stewardship organization on behalf of paint manufacturers, submitted a detailed stewardship plan on March 3, 2014. The MPCA has 90 days to review, and must approve this plan before the program can begin. A public comment period is open through April 15. MPCA will post comments and take them into consideration as part of the staff review of the stewardship plan.
