Paint Recycling Program
The Province of Saskatchewan has issued a Waste Paint Management Regulation. The regulation requires the paint industry to manage a consumer take-back program in Saskatchewan for leftover household paint. The Program is managed by the paint industry through their non-profit association, Product Care. Product Care's members include manufacturers, distributors, and retail. Paint can be dropped off without charge at any of SARCAN's depot locations across the province. Please check www.sarcsarcan.ca/sarcan/paint_recycling.php for program guidelines.
|In addition to the above programs, Plus Industries also accepts newspaper, cardboard, glass and tin at the SARCAN recycling depot.|
