					Help us keep leftover paint out of landfills and
waterways! The Saskatchewan Paint Stewardship                                            Saskatchewan
Program was established by Product Care Association                               Paint Stewardship Program
to meet the requirements of the Saskatchewan Waste
Paint Management Regulations. Product Care is a non-
profit association - our members are the manufacturers,
distributors and retailers of paint products.

It’s easy - leftover household paint (see details inside)
can be dropped off at any of SARCAN’s 70 recycling depots,
                                                                                    Leftover
province-wide, without charge. The collected paint is reused,
recycled into other products or used for its energy value.
                                                                                     Paint?

STORING PAINT FOR LATER USE:
• Store products in original, securely sealed & labeled containers.
• Store paint away from extreme heat or cold. Avoid freezing paint.
• Paint can be stored! Clean the rim for a good seal.
  Pour 3 mm (1/8") of paint thinner on top of oil-based paint,
  or 3 mm (1/8") of water on latex paint or store upside down.

PROGRAM FUNDING:

Most retailers show the eco-fee separately at the point of
