& Price

Our staff can place containers at your location for easy and safe pick up. Tenants/residents can bring all of their hard to recycle and universal hazardous waste to the Recycling Stations and then put it into various bins.

A professional driver will pick up your recyclables in the bins that are full based on your notification. Once waste paint is collected from your site, it is brought to our warehouse where it is weighed and processed. It is then the responsibility of Waste Diversion to see that the containers are dispatched to the location where the products are recycled. A paint recycling factory sorts, filters, and reuses leftover paints to be made into new paint. Unrecoverable waste paint is safely disposed of.

Contact us at (416) 495-9914 to start recycling your paint today.

Paint Recycling Matters

If improperly disposed of, used paint poses a significant risk to the environment. We divert leftover paints from businesses and consumers and help to recycle them into new paint. We also arrange for empty cans to be melted down so they can have a second life. In all, your leftover paint is recycled into environmentally responsible products, ensuring they don't end up in landfills, or get poured down sewers and drains.

We are also a member of the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) and can issue certificates of recycling. If you are a building manager these certificates of recycling can help your building get recognized or continue to maintain your ranking with associations like LEED and BOMA BEST.
