Please note

Our drop off points are on council run Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). Some councils restrict access to their HWRCs to local residents only, so if you are planning to donate paint at a neighbouring council’s HWRC (i.e. not the council you pay your council tax to), then please check that they are able to accept paint from outside the area before visiting.

For health and safety reasons access onto HWRCs is by vehicle only.

Opening hours

HWRCs are usually open during daylight hours, but it is always worth checking the opening hours before you go.
