Commercial painters and companies that use paint during the course of their business (referred to as 'commercial generators') can take advantage of Alberta's Paint Recycling Program.  This is provided the paint products and containers are found on the list of Eligible Products.
There are different options to help you recycle your  paint and containers:
  • Contact one of the Registered Paint Processors to arrange for pickup of your paint material or if you want to drop off your paint material directly at one of their sites.

  • Check the Collection Site Finder to see if your local municipal paint collection site will accept from commercial generators. 

  • In Edmonton, commercial generators can recycle their paint material at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre.  Please click here for details regarding the location and drop-off instructions.

  • In Calgary, please contact EnviroSORT Inc. at 1-800-567-4209, extension 100, as this company has a contract with the City to provide paint recycling services for Calgary businesses.

  • Special commercial paint recycling events (also known as roundups) are held periodically in the Edmonton and Calgary areas.  These events are usually held over one or two days and they are designed specifically for commercial generators to bring in their unused paint and empty paint containers for recycling.   Please watch this page for notices.


  • At Nor-Alta Waste & Site Services Inc. in Edmonton, Thursday May 25 and Friday May 26 from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Please click here for details
