Where Does the Paint Go?

Sadly, Paint and Sip businesses send their paint down the drain, fouling city sewers, septic systems and our waterways.  Let’s face it; it doesn’t just disappear!

Essex Paint and Sip Paint Bar utilizes an engineered paint separation system to separate paint from the rinse water, leaving flocks of dried paint and clear water.  The water is re-cycled for paint rinsing / cleaning and can be ultimately cleanly released into the sanitary system. The dried paint flocks are properly discarded in the landfill.
