  • What other factors have affected the amount of leftover paint?

Another goal of the Oregon Pilot program is to ensure that the post-consumer paint management system (i.e. collection of leftover paint) is environmentally beneficial, economical, and convenient to consumers. (Question 7 assesses a similar question on local government.) The question provides for the collection of a broad range of information starting with the amounts of paint (and containers) that are dropped off at facilities and including information on cost of running the program, quality of paint that is dropped off, the environmental impacts of the program, convenience for consumers, and infrastructure of the program. This question will also provide information on how the program affected the transportation of paint. Increased levels of transportation could offset some of the environmental benefits of the program. In terms of convenience and infrastructure the program plan has identified a number of goals and has made available some baseline data.
