Materials NOT Accepted from COMMERCIAL Users:
Some electronic waste contains hazardous materials that are potentially harmful to the environment if not disposed of in a safe manner. Electronic waste also contains valuable metals and components that can be safely recycled to manufacture new products.
Businesses should contact the Electronic Products Recycling Association for information on recycling electronics by visiting recycleMYelectronics.ca or by calling EPRA toll-free at 1-888-567-4535.
Businesses must hire a private waste collector to dispose of hazardous materials. Hazardous waste includes products that are toxic, corrosive, flammable or explosive (pressurized containers). This includes many commercial products, ranging from batteries and cleaners to solvents, commercial paint and adhesives. Contact the Department of Municipalities and Environment for more information: http://www.ecc.gov.nl.ca/env_protection/waste/.
Paint is considered hazardous waste and should never be disposed of with regular garbage. If dumped into a landfill or down the drain, it can pollute the air, land and water. Many paints contain toxic heavy metals such as cadmium or lead. Even modern latex paints, though they contain fewer toxic substances, can be hazardous.
The following items are accepted as part of Product Care’s Regeneration Paint Recycling program:
- All household paint products and containers
- Paint aerosols of all types
- Automotive, craft and industrial paint
