About the scheme
This Community RePaint drop-off point is located within Bristol City Council’s St Philips Household Waste Recycling Centre.
If you live within the Bristol City Council area and you have leftover paint from your home, you can use the drop-off point on-site at St Philips HWRC to pass your paint on for reuse.
You must book in advance to visit the recycling centre and must arrive onsite with photo ID and proof of residency – click here to book a slot. Groups and individuals will then be able to access the site to collect the paint and use it locally. You can also drop paint off at the Avonmouth HWRC and Hartcliffe HWRC.
Our Bristol City scheme, hosted by Sofa Project, collects the paint from the St Phillips recycling centre. The paint is then taken back to their premises where it is made available to individuals and groups in need.
As this drop-off point is run by the local authority, the site is unable to accept paint donations from businesses. If you are a trader, retailer, manufacturer or other business with leftover paint, click here to find out how you can donate your leftover paint for reuse through the Community RePaint network.
Please note, if you live outside of Bristol, 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 your local authority for guidance on what to do with your leftover paint. You can also adapt this template letter to encourage your local authority to consider collecting leftover paint for reuse at their sites.
