Why Recycle Paint?
Paint beautifies our homes and brings colour to our lives. When used properly, it has little impact on the environment. However, not every can of paint gets used up, and if it’s improperly disposed of, leftover paint can be harmful to the environment and can threaten marine life, sewers and streams, and take up unnecessary landfill space.
As paint is a special waste substance that must be handled securely, leftover paint and paint cans should be managed responsibly. The safest option to reduce landfill waste and environmental harm is by dropping them off at a Product Care Recycling location. Quality paint is made available for reuse through our PaintShare program, and the rest is responsibly managed, typically through recycling.
