SARCAN Recycling depots accept used paint for reusing and/or recycling. If you have leftover household paint, bring it to SARCAN! If it can be reused, we will put it on the paint exchange shelf at the depot for customers to take free of charge. If the paint is not reusable, we will recycle it.
SARCAN collects used paint on behalf of the Saskatchewan Paint Recycling Program, managed by Product Care, a non-profit association of paint manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Product Care’s paint recycling programs are funded by the environmental handling fees paid upon the purchase of new paint.
Paint can be dropped off without charge at any of SARCAN's depot locations across the province.
