About the scheme

If you are a resident within Bristol and you have leftover paint from your home you can use the drop-off point on site to pass your paint on to your local scheme in Bristol. You must book to visit the recycling centre – click here to book a slot. You can also drop paint off at the Avonmouth Recycling Centre.

Our Bristol City scheme, hosted by Sofa Project, collect the paint from the recycling centre. The paint is then taken back to their premises where it is made available to individuals and groups in need. Unfortunately, our schemes are unable to take paint directly from individuals.

Please note, if you are not a member of this local authority you will not be eligible to access the site. If there is no drop-off point in your local authority area you will need to contact them for guidance on what to do with your leftover paint. You can also adapt this template letter to encourage them to consider collecting leftover paint for reuse at their sites.

If you would like to make your paint available to other people to use you can post it on local reuse sites such as Freegle and Gumtree.
