Paint Recycling Program

Recycle NB oversees New Brunswick’s Paint Stewardship Program.  The paint recycling program, in place since 2009, is industry-led and financed.  Product Care Association operates the paint recycling program on behalf of the paint industry.  With more than 60 recycling depots across the province, it is easy to recycle leftover paint products and containers.  

Thanks to New Brunswickers’ recycling efforts, the paint recycling program collected 268,880 litres of paint in 2015. Approximately 70% of the paint collected was recycled into new paint products. A small percentage was reused through paint exchange and 9% went to energy recovery.
