What is WRED?

Inspired by America Recycles Day, WSRA hosts Washington Recycles Every Day (WRED) events throughout the year, bringing professionals from all over Washington State together for discussion of recycling issues and behind the scenes tours of working facilities and technology demonstrations. Most of our events are currently virtual but we look forward to resuming some in-person events in the upcoming year.

WRED’s Paint Stewardship Webinar

Thursday, July 15, 2021 

The State of Washington launched the new Paint Stewardship Program through Paint Care in April 2021. By encouraging households and businesses to recycle paint and making free and convenient drop-off locations, Paint Care hopes to increase the amount of paint reused, recycled or safely disposed of. After it is collected it must be transported and disposed of safely. ACT enviro is going to tell you about how they can help you to manage the paint. ACT enviro is a Paint Care approved hauler in the state of WA.
