Commercial and Trade Painters

2019-09-24 Calgary RU (19).JPG

Commercial painters and businesses in general (collectively referred to as 'commercial generators') can take advantage of Alberta's Paint Recycling Program to recycle eligible paint and empty paint cans.

Year-Round Recycling Options

  1. Check the Recycling Depot Finder to see if your local municipal paint collection site will accept from commercial generators.
  2. 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.

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.
