Your paint details

Please send us details of your leftover paint so we can identify a suitable scheme to refer you to. We try to match all paint to a scheme but unfortunately it is not always possible. We will process your enquiry and get back to you with the outcome within 3 working days.

Our schemes will accept all brands of paint, but there are some types of paint they cannot accept:

Process

Once we receive details of your leftover paint we will identify the nearest suitable scheme. Initially we will liaise with the scheme on your behalf and pass details of the paint to them. The scheme will then contact you to organise collecting the paint and discuss any other details.

Charges

Schemes typically request a processing fee for accepting your leftover paint. This covers their collection and operational costs and will vary between schemes. Due to this we are unable to advise on the potential charges, but as soon as we put you in touch with the scheme they will be able to provide full details. Any charges will be considerably less than the cost of hazardous waste disposal.

Reasons to work with our schemes:

  • Prevent a valuable resource from going to waste.
  • Reduce your paint disposal costs.
  • Improve your green credentials.
  • Benefit your local community.
  • Generate positive stories about your organisation.
