 Hopworks Urban Brewery
Learn About Oregon’s Paint Recycling Program
Presented by
Dan Blue, MetroPaint
Steve Dearbon, CEO, Miller Paint


Did you know that using recycled paint decreases a project’s carbon footprint, reduces the need for landfill space, conserves the water needed to make new paint and prevents pollution from the mining and extraction of raw materials?

Join us for our May program to learn about how MetroPaint and Miller Paint work together to protect our environment and keep reusable materials out of landfills.


Dan Blue – Metropaint, Steve Dearborn – CEO, Miller Paint

More than recycled, remade new MetroPaint is screened for quality and reblended into desirable colors. MetroPaint goes through a strict color-matching process to ensure the colors are consistent from one gallon to the next.  MetroPaint can be used indoors as well as outdoors.  Choosing MetroPaint is environmentally smart and supports an effort that has remade millions of gallons of latex paint, keeping these reusable resources out of landfills.

Learning Objectives
  • Learn about MetroPaint and Miller Paint individually (brief history, who they are, what they do);
  • Gain an understanding of how the these organizations collaborate and coordinate on recovered paint;
  • Discover information on recycled paint quality (how recovered paint is processed, produced and sold);
  • Find out where these organizations are headed in the future (individually and in collaboration on recovered paint);
