Hell next time just strain it up and use it on your 1 star jobs or for folks that want blow n go prices. Use it for crack filler on old siding and eaves then wait a day or two and hit it with a top coat. Old paint gone.

I actually batch my mis-tints to make off white colors whenever i can instead of leaving a bunch of weird colors in my mistint pile. A few pennies worth of colorant is a small price to pay to make a more sell-able color.

I can't help but wonder if SW could be behind the whole PaintCare program; and then conveniently re-naming all the same crap to "Pro Industrial" so they don't have to deal with it.

Wow! Someone dug up an old thread here.

Okay, I've said this before.

Dump all your old paint into 5 gallon buckets. Make sure the buckets don't have any of your company's info on it or your personal info. Just peel the mixing labels off.

Got a company in your area that you think is over-rated or you just dislike? Write their name on the bucket lid. Leave next to a dumpster.

Problem solved.

Well, no matter what the reason it's still going to be unreliable crap and in no possible way will it be even a reasonable primer. BTW: This being a site for professional painters, there is no "Relevant experience"! Most of us buy the best product we can to do the best job we can and charge for professional work. What kind of answers did you expect? No pro would condone such a practice.

I can not condone such a stunt! After all, he may hate some other first rate companies because they are so popular and professional. That should not be a reason to be punished!

RECYCLE is the way to go.

One of my clients dropped off a load of different, left over paint last August. I found them on my deck when I got home. He was selling his house and "Thought you could use it." I did not want to offend. I did keep 2 gallons of unopened white ceiling paint, a gallon & quart of 123 and half a gallon of BIN shellac white primer. I also kept a quart of gloss black Tremclad. 7 partial gallons of wall paints went to recycle. (In the end he took the house off the market and has more work for me in the spring.)

For those of us who have recycling centers managed by the county, or other defined jurisdictions, simply dropping off the paint is the best way to be done with it. The last thing I could care less about, is some Jackhole using me as a free waste management center and than "doing me a favor" by burdening me with labor on his effin dwelling.

A guy I worked with had a brother who was going into the paint business or was gonna paint his house or something and he asked if I had any paint. You bet I did! Couldn't believe my luck 'cause it didn't matter latex or oil- whatever. I wish I could get such a deal now!

Anyone who wants to drop off ceiling paint or good primer is welcome to leave it with me so long as it has not been opened!

I was ready to argue that a relatively short shelf life would be a good reason not to accept leftover paint, until I read the TDS for BIN 123 Primer. Five year shelf life!

I've been working with Stericycle on this for 3+ months now. The red tape etc is quite a hassle. I have around 300 containers of stuff to get rid of. Had to buy special Hazmat containers from Uline to ship the stuff which cost almost $1,000. Most of it is old nasty multi-component stuff from the 90's.

In the end, I'm hopeful that all 5 pallets will go out the door never to be seen again! So far it looks like it will be minimum $5,000 but hopefully less than $10,000.

My business is only a CESQG, yet the shipping manifests get filed with the EPA along with a description of the type of waste generated plus the poundage. I purchase the DOT 55 gal shipping drums from Grainger. It can get a bit pricey but I like to stay on top of it.

Not really, my client, my paint returning. I know exactly how old it is and I can always use white primer and ceiling paint, so I was OK with that drop.

Although I wouldn't be too concerned about a particular primer I left at a homeowner's house two years ago, I would have concerns that they didn't follow storage recommendations. Opened, or un opened.

Maybe it's just me, but I would struggle ethically if I were to use a primer on a customers house that wasn't purchased directly from a store, or at least carefully stored and cycled within my own stock. Especially given the precarious nature of correct film formation. Too much liability.

I can use the stuff on my own house that is under constant and on-going renovations.
