On February 28, 2002, the Nova Scotia Environment and Labour ministry announced a new paint-recycling program to recover thousands of litres of paint and paint cans as well as create employment. Minister David Morse announced the program at the annual RRFB Nova Scotia (formerly the Resource Recovery Fund Board) award ceremony in Halifax. The program — which will be in effect on June 1 — will allow consumers to return surplus paint to any one of the province’s 85 recycling depots at no charge. The paint will then be shipped to a paint-recycling operation in Springhill to produce about 350,000 litres of recycled paint annually. Nova Scotians buy more than two million containers of paint every year.
