About the scheme

Our scheme in Avonmouth is run by Bristol Waste. It is operated through the local household waste recycling centre. At this site, you can drop off leftover paint from your home or collect paint for your home or local project.

Drop-off leftover paint:

If you are a resident within Bristol City Council and you have leftover paint from your home you can use the drop-off point on-site to leave your paint.

You must book in advance to visit the recycling centre and 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 your paint off at St Phillips HWRC and Hartcliffe HWRC.

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.

Pick up leftover paint:

You can buy leftover tins of paint, and also ReColour remanufactured paint, from the Bristol Waste Reuse Shop at Avonmouth Recycling Centre. The shop diverts good quality, pre-loved items from the waste stream; providing low-cost household products, such as televisions, furniture and vacuums, for residents. Please contact for available colours and prices.

The reuse shop is open 7 days a week between 10am and 3pm. Read more here.

Access: The shop has its own entrance and parking, so you can make a visit without visiting the Recycling Centre. If there is a queue for the Recycling Centre, you can make yourself known to a member of staff at the site, or phone 0117 304 9590, to be directed straight to the shop. Please note that you cannot access the Recycling Centre from the shop, so if you are visiting both, you may choose to use the Recycling Centre first. The shop is open to non-Bristol residents and you can the shop on any day during its opening hours, regardless of it being an odd or even number plate day.
