Community RePaint schemes collect reusable, leftover paint and re-distribute it to individuals, families, communities and charities in need, improving the wellbeing of people and the appearance of places across the UK.
We see 'waste paint' as a resource (as long as it is reusable) so do your bit for the environment and your local community by donating your leftover paint to us!
In 2014 the Community RePaint national network:
• saved over 446,000 of paint, donated by householders and businesses, from going to waste
• and redistributed over 300,000 litres of paint to 3,382 community groups, charities and voluntary organisations and over 34,000 people in social need.
The focus of this year’s Zero Waste Week is re-use so we just couldn’t resist putting together a quick guide with everything we think you need to know about paint re-use in the UK....
