About the scheme

Our Bristol City scheme is run by the SOFA project, a reuse and recycling charity plus a social enterprise. They have three shops in Bristol, one based on Gloucester Road, one based on Day’s Road, and this shop, in Old Market.  They sell a variety of second-hand/preloved furniture, electrical items, retro furniture and clothing at affordable prices.

The scheme stocks full and part-full containers from householders, traders, retailers and manufacturers.  If you have good quality surplus paint then you can take it into any of the three stores. The paint is checked and logged and is available to purchase by individuals and groups for between £1-2 per litre.

To pick up paint for your project, simply visit the scheme during its opening hours. They also have free parking at the back of the shop, if you are travelling by car.

Stock at Community RePaint schemes does vary throughout the year depending on what paint has recently been passed on for reuse by local businesses, traders and/or waste contractors in the area.

If there are specific types or colours of paint you are interested in purchasing for your project, we recommend contacting the scheme directly ahead of visiting, to find out if they have the paint you’re looking for in stock.

If you need larger quantities (over 60 litres) of paint for a community project, you can also order our remanufactured paint from us centrally. Find out more here.
