The Ministry of Environment created, monitors, evaluates and administers regulations for the following programs:
Electronic Waste Recycling - Ensure your end-of-life electronic products are recycled responsibly and help divert thousands of tonnes of old electronic waste from Saskatchewan landfills. You can recycle your old electronics at any SARCAN depot. Check out www.sweepit.ca for information.
Paint Recycling - Drop off unwanted household paint to be recycled at any SARCAN depot in the province. SARCAN also offers a free Paint Exchange Program. Check out Product Care for information.
Beverage Container Recycling - Take your non-refillable, ready-to-serve beverage containers to any SARCAN depot and receive a deposit refund. These containers include metal, plastic, and glass packaging and juice boxes. SARCAN also collects other recyclables on behalf other recycling agencies in Saskatchewan. Go to www.sarcsarcan.ca for information.
Scrap Tire Recycling - Millions of used tires are diverted from the Saskatchewan's waste stream by recycling them into useful, marketable items, such as speed bumps, vehicle ramps, tree rings and mulch mats and running tracks, etc. Check out www.scraptire.sk.ca for information. The Saskatchewan Scrap Tire Corporation (SSTC) is a non-profit, non-government organization that delivers the province-wide tire recycling program.
Used Oil Recycling - Improperly discarding used oil materials in fields, ditches, drains or on roadsides contributes to environmental pollution and wastes non-renewable natural resources. When collected, used oil materials can be recycled and reprocessed into useful products. Go to www.usedoilrecyclingsk.com for information. New petroleum and antifreeze products have been added to the program as of January 1, 2014.
