A not-for-profit industry-sponsored association, Product Care has been helping its members protect the environment by diverting household hazardous and special waste from ending up in landfills and waterways, since 1994.

It began with just one product and one province – paint in British Columbia. Now, in response to an increasing number of government-mandated “extended producer responsibility” regulations, Product Care manages a variety of product stewardship programs, from paint and flammables to lighting and fire alarms, in eight provinces across Canada.

Product Care also provides program management services for small appliance, major appliance and outdoor power equipment product stewardship programs. In addition, Product Care worked with PaintCare™ in the U.S. to establish the first paint recycling program in Oregon and then California.  For a full list of programs and to learn more about Product Care, visit productcare.org.

Product Care’s President Mark Kurschner serves on the GlobalPSC Executive Committee and as a member of the GlobalPSC Advisory Group.

  1. Great addition to the GlobalPSC. Product Care’s Mark Kurschner was helpful to our work in the US by coming to speak at a large product stewardship forum I held in Portland, Maine in August 2010. I’ll be forever grateful for his presentation (as well as BC’s Neil Hastie and Quebec’s Mario LaQuerre) to help stakeholders in the US see that this could work for industry if done properly.
