The paint stewardship program is operated through the Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA).
DBS Environmental (DBS) is proud to participate in the program as a processor since its inception on April 1, 2008.
Residents of participating municipalities are able to drop off leftover paint and containers at collection sites free of charge. Accepted are household paint in containers sizes of 100ml to 23 litres. Paint collection can be in conjunction with our household hazardous waste round ups or with the PUP program.
DBS has the capability of picking up containers (bins) filled with paint. The containers will be removed and taken to the DBS transfer site in Lethbridge for processing. Full containers are replaced with empty ones.
For a more information on the materials accepted in the paint program, please look on the ARMA website. www.albertarecycling.ca
