Factors to consider when determining program goals may include the current and future recycling infrastructure and capacity and changes in market conditions in California. Description of goals must include a baseline, to be provided by the manufacturer or stewardship organization, from which the goals will be measured and reported in the manufacturer or stewardship organization's annual reports. The baseline should indicate the status of household hazardous waste management in California at the time of plan submission. Describe how the goals will be measured, including a description of the methodology used for estimating the amount of leftover paint available for collection in California. Describe how the program will:
(A) Reduce the generation of postconsumer paint;
(B) Promote the reuse of postconsumer paint;
(C) Properly manage postconsumer paint at end-of-life in an environmentally sound fashion, including recovery, recycling, and proper disposal of postconsumer paint; and
(D) Manage paint containers and undertake market development activities, if a manufacturer or stewardship organization chooses to engage in these activities.
(3) Collection Systems.

(E) Address the coordination of the architectural paint stewardship program with existing local household hazardous waste collection programs. A manufacturer or stewardship organization must negotiate with existing local household hazardous waste collection programs wanting to participate in the paint stewardship program as a collection point as much as is reasonably feasible and is mutually agreeable.
(F) Address the coordination of the architectural paint stewardship program with potential retail collection points. Any retailer may participate, on a voluntary basis, as a paint collection point pursuant to the paint stewardship program. A manufacturer or stewardship organization must negotiate with any retailer wanting to participate in the paint stewardship program as a collection point, as much as is reasonably feasible and is mutually agreeable.
(4) Financing Mechanism. Include a funding mechanism that provides sufficient funding to recover, but not exceed, the cost of the architectural paint stewardship program, including the administrative (including financial audits per PRC §48705(a)(6)), operational, and capital costs of the program.

The description shall include how the outreach and education methods will be used and distributed. Educational information may include, but is not limited to, signage, written materials, advertising, or other promotional materials pursuant to PRC §48703(e). A manufacturer or stewardship organization may not advertise a collection point(s) as being part of a manufacturer or stewardship organization's program that is not a contracted collection point for the manufacturer or stewardship organization's stewardship program. This provision does not apply to referrals to collection points based on publically available information.
(6) Stakeholder Consultations. In addition to existing local household hazardous waste collection programs per §18953(a)(3)(E), other stakeholders that may be consulted include, but are not limited to, consumers, retailers, architectural paint recyclers, architectural paint contractors, and haulers.
