Working with Eligible Downstream Processors
The following points are provided to help clarify business arrangements between Registered Processors and Downstream Paint Processors.
- To be eligible for funding, Registered Processors must provide the required information on each Downstream Processor and have them approved by Alberta Recycling before starting to ship paint material to them.
- Companies currently handling, transporting and processing recyclable hazardous wastes in Alberta have to meet provincial and federal environmental and safety requirements.
- The environmental and safety requirements of the paint recycling program align with these standards, therefore these companies are eligible for approval as Downstream Processors.
- Downstream Processors working with Registered Processors are encouraged to inform Alberta Recycling of your interest in the program.
