“Friendly Manitoba”, as its nicknamed, has over one million people, with half of the population living in the province’s capital city of Winnipeg.
Grasslands span the southwest corner of Manitoba, while trees and lakes cover the rest of the province. Manitoba has more than 110,000 lakes and the tenth-largest freshwater lake in the world, while its coastline borders the saltwater Hudson Bay. Product Care Recycling is committed to protecting these lakes and grasslands, by providing waste diversion solutions across the province.
The Manitoba Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program, operated by Product Care Recycling, began in 2012 in response to the provincial Household Hazardous Material and Prescribed Material Stewardship Regulation. Manitoba’s recycling locations include government facilities, private businesses, and non-profit organizations. These permanent recycling locations are augmented by recycling events held around the province, including in rural and remote communities that do not have permanent recycling locations.
With Manitoba’s paint recycling program, you can recycle many types of paint products including alkyd paint, latex paint, empty paint cans and paint aerosols.

Please use Manitoba’s HHW program page for full details and to check whether your HHW is accepted.
