Stakeholder Consultations for Alberta's New Paint Stewardship Program

Alberta's paint recycling program will be implemented on April 1, 2008. The Alberta Recycling Management Authority has been delegated to manage this new program.

Municipal solid waste management and recycling staff are key stakeholders in the new stewardship program. Building on the original consultations by Alberta Environment on a paint stewardship program, Alberta Recycling is seeking your input before finalizing the program.

The following regional meetings have been scheduled to get municipal input:

Grande Prairie – Friday, November 23, 2007
Red Deer – Tuesday, November 27, 2007 (before AUMA Calgary)
Calgary – Friday, November 30, 2007 (after AUMA)
Lethbridge – Monday, December 3, 2007
Edmonton – Wednesday, December 5, 2007
St. Paul – Monday, December 10, 2007

The meetings will run from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, with lunch provided. Please download the registration form in word format or pdf format.

Following the meetings, Alberta Recycling will distribute the results of these consultations to all municipalities prior to finalizing the program. They will then provide municipalities with a comprehensive program package well in advance of the April 2008 start date.

If you would like more information on the meetings or the new program, please contact Chantel Ducharme, Alberta Recycling Management Authority, at 1-888-999-8762.
