We have three recycling programs in place to help lessen the impact that the products we sell have on the environment.  

NEW!! Art Supply Recycling

Bring in your used art supplies that were previously purchased at Cowan's and we'll ensure they are recycled! Accepted items:

  • paint brushes
  • paint tubes/cans/bottles
  • watercolour paint palettes
  • crayons
  • charcoals/pastels
  • sponges
  • markers
  • tape
  • paint thinner bottles.

Not including school and office supplies (such as hole punchers, sharpeners, and staplers, etc.)

Ink & Toner Recycling

We offer a toner and inkjet recycling program for any of these cartridges that are purchased from us.  Just bring them in and we send them to Clover Imaging group where they are re-manufactured to be used again, or broken down and recycled.

Pen & Pencil Recycling

Accepted items:

  • pens
  • markers
  • pencils  

If you purchased the products from us we will take care of the recycling.  Just bring them in and we send them off to Terracycle where they are broken down into their constituent parts and reused or recycled.

Working hard to give you more great reasons to shop locally at Cowan's!
