Paint is collected free of charge at over 200 designated recycling areas across BC as part of the legislated Product Stewardship program coordinated by Product Care Recycling
. An eco fee is included in the cost each time a paint can is purchased to cover the cost of safe disposal or recycling. A full list of what is accepted and free
drop off locations is available on their website.
If you have more than 10 cans of paint
or 50 aerosol cans
to drop off, use the program designed specifically for industrial users who generate large volumes of paint
; it helps prevent recycling locations from becoming overwhelmed.
