Paint Products


Wondering what to do with the old cans of paint you have piling up in your garage? Did you know that your old paint could be used to make something new? Recycling old or unneeded paint means that it can be used to make biofuel, new paint and even concrete products! We’re pleased to accept various paint products at our locations in Campbell River and Duncan. By returning old paint cans, leftover paint and aerosol paint cans you are helping keep our water clean and reducing the amount of waste in our landfills.

We accept interior and exterior water-based paints, deck and floor coating, wood finishing oil and much more! NO INDUSTRIAL PAINT WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Island Return It takes back leftover household paint, varnish, shellacs and stains free of charge. When returning leftover paint, be sure to keep products in their original containers with labels on. Do not combine leftover paints with each other or with oils, solvents or other products. Make sure paint cans are properly sealed before transporting.

We are unable to accept any products that cannot be identified, products that are leaking or cannot be sealed, brushes, rollers and rags or cosmetics. See below for a full list of products that are not accepted.
