Paint contains toxic and hazardous materials that can pollute the air, land and water if not properly disposed.

In Newfoundland & Labrador, the management of leftover paint falls under the Product Care Association – an industry-led producer responsibility organization. Residents and businesses can properly dispose of paint products and containers in a convenient and environmentally friendly manner at collection sites located throughout the province.

Since the program launch in 2012, over 1.4 million litres of paint have been diverted from our landfills.

Accepted items include paint products such as:

  • Undercoat
  • Anti-rust paint
  • Block filler
  • Deck and Floor paint or coatings (including elastomeric)
  • Drywall paint
  • Melamine
  • Stain blocking paint
  • Stucco paint
  • Swimming pool paint (only single component)
  • Textured paint
  • Wood finishing oil
  • Wood preservatives
  • Water repellant
  • Aerosol paint (craft, automotive and industrial)
