Top Coat Painting

Paint Recycling Service

There’s no argument about the potential damage and environmental impact of the painting industry. Our job as stewards is to make smart decisions for the future.
It’s reported that British Columbians recycle over 2 million liters of paint each year. Thats over 500,000 gallons of household paint, just think, enough to paint more than 5000 Boeing 747’s! And this, doesn’t even include the small amounts of paint and plastics left behind on the average job site! So once you see the big picture, these small amounts tell a pretty clear story.

Every paint retail store in BC retains a small deposit fee with every purchase, put aside for the future recycling and disposal of that product. This is an integrated stewardship program initiated by the local and provincial governments to create a future of Zero Waste. Our production standards are based on the respect of nature and the balance between quality painting and sustainable practices.

Throughout our 15 years of quality painting and community service to Victoria, Top Coat Painting has promoted environmental awareness. Effective project management, smart product purchases and the proper systems of disposal and handling paint and debris are some of the ways we are trying to reduce the effects of our industry.

Curbside Paint Pick-Up

One small way Top Coat Painting is making a local environmental difference is by offering their complimentary Curbside Paint Pick-Up and removal of all old and unwanted paint off your property and recycling them at the designated Product Care centers. This not only saves you time and effort but also contributes to a cleaner environment.

Our Curbside Paint Pick-Up recycling service is not exclusive to Top Coat Painting clients only. With a minimum donation of $10, Top Coat Painting will come to your address and pick up and recycle your unwanted collection of interior and exterior paints. This donation goes directly to the Firefighter’s Burn Fund which houses families undergoing treatment for burn injuries.
All you need to do is contact Top Coat Painting and we’ll arrange a time to deliver prompt and professional service while cleaning up your community one house at a time. With environmental initiatives like this, we can reduce the pollution and make better decisions for the future!
