Registered Paint Processors (recyclers) are private companies that have been audited and approved by Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA).

They protect both the environment and the health and safety of their employees in the collection and preparation of eligible end-of-life paint and paint containers for delivery to downstream processors and are regularly reviewed to ensure that they maintain the requirements of the Paint Recycling Program.

Registered Paint Processor Incentive Program Requirements

Here is a brief outline of the application requirements:

  2. Evidence of a closure plan and posting of security with Alberta Recycling (minimum amount of security required is $20,000) or provide evidence of security in place with Alberta Environment and Parks.
  3. Copies of all required insurance.
  4. Evidence of an account in good standing with Workers’ Compensation Board.
  5. Copy of Certificate of Recognition.
  6. Evidence of an Environmental Management System in place to ensure adequate control of the processing site’s impact on the environment.

Please note that the review process for an application can take from four to six months in order for interim approval to be considered.

If you would like more information or to make an application please e-mail

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.
