What do I do with old paint and empty paint cans?

Paint containers with lids and labels, both full or empty, are part of a provincial take back program and therefore prohibited to be disposed of at refuse disposal facilities, with the exception of the paint drop offs located at the Revelstoke and Salmon Arm Landfills.  To find the nearest drop off depot, visit ReGeneration.

Containers without lids or labels may either be disposed of in the landfill, provided the paint is completely dried out (do this by leaving the lid off in the sun, or by mixing the paint with sawdust), or taken to the hazardous waste collection depot at the Revelstoke or Salmon Arm Landfill.
