Newfoundland and Labrador is comprised of the island of Newfoundland and the mainland of Labrador. It is Canada’s most easterly province with a population of about 528,000 people.
Famously colourful houses can be seen throughout the province, which are painted brightly so that ships can see them in fog. Labrador is the easternmost part of the Canadian Shield, a vast area made up mostly of plutonic and metamorphic rocks, some of which are the oldest known on Earth. Product Care Recycling is committed to protecting Newfoundland and Labrador by providing waste diversion solutions across the province.
Since 2012, Product Care Recycling has been supporting local jobs in Newfoundland and Labrador and protecting the planet through our paint recycling program. The paint recycling program was developed in response to the Newfoundland and Labrador Waste Management Regulations and is overseen by the Multi-Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB). The program accepts paint products at various recycling locations including government facilities, Green Depots, and retailers. Recycling events are also held around the province to augment the recycling system.
In Newfoundland and Labrador’s paint recycling program, we accept many types of paint products including alkyd paint, latex paint, empty paint cans and paint aerosols.
