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.
