In response to COVID-19, the Recycling Depots may be reducing their hours and services. Please contact your Recycling Depot to confirm their hours of operation prior to dropping off your electronics, paint, tires or used oil materials. Ensure social distancing best practice when visiting a depot. Thank you and stay safe!

When you recycle, you perform magic.

Recycling is more than paper, plastics or cardboard. We recycle four materials that are difficult to dispose of and can be hazardous to the environment.

We've gone digital!

It's a simple step toward encouraging reduction and managing our resources more responsibly.

Giving EVEN MORE electronics a new life.

Proudly announcing the latest step towards an expanded Electronics Recycling Program - our exciting new pilot project.

Protecting our environment.

Alberta's Paint Recycling Program is helping protect our environment by keeping paint and paint containers out of our landfills which can pose environmental and health risks if disposed of improperly.

124.7 million tires recycled.

Our Tire Recycling Program has grown into a thriving, innovative industry that is helping keep the province’s environment safe for generations to come.

Save your oil, save the environment.

Alberta's Used Oil Materials Recycling Program has been doing its part to protect our environment since 1997.

The Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA) acts on behalf of the province to oversee all aspects of end-of-life processing of electronics, paint, tires and used oil materials. In addition, ARMA supports the administration of the Northwest Territories' electronics recycling program and Yukon's tire recycling program.


Did you know there are over 450 registered recycling depots throughout Alberta?


Recycling in Alberta since 1992

We’ve recycled a lot of electronics, paint, tires, and used oil over the years, and we couldn’t do it without you.



Electronics recycled. An average of six per household in Alberta!



Litres of paint recycled. Enough to paint 403,903 homes!



Tires recycled. Enough to wrap around the equator twice (and then some)!



Litres of used oil recycled. Enough to lubricate 360,000,000 vehicles!
