About SARCAN Recycling

SARCAN Recycling provides environmental protection, employment creation and economic development through a province-wide network for recycling beverage containers, paint and electronics.

SARCAN was founded in 1988 by SARC, the province-wide association that provides supports and services to organizations that serve people with disabilities throughout the province of Saskatchewan. 

SARCAN was initially set up to recycle beverage containers, and it has since expanded its programs to include end-of-life electronics and paint recycling.

When customers bring their beverage containers for recycling at SARCAN, they receive the refund of the deposit that was initially paid for at the time of purchase. Electronics and Paint are recycled as well; however, they do not have deposits attached to them, so there is no refund given by SARCAN. 

All beverage containers, electronics and paint are processed and recycled in to new products. All materials received by SARCAN are recycled responsibly, within North America; nothing is ever shipped overseas or sent to landfills.

SARCAN has 72 recycling centres throughout Saskatchewan, two processing plants and one administrative office in Saskatoon. SARCAN employs people of all abilities, and, with over 600 staff, is one of the largest affirmative employers in Canada. 

The SARCAN system for recycling is one of the most efficient and effective in North America, making SARCAN a champion of environmental protection.
