About the scheme
Our scheme in County Durham, run by County Durham Furniture Help Scheme, joined the network in 2011. They collect paint locally from traders, retailers and manufacturers and also accept donations of non-hazardous, usable paint from householders. Paint is available for individuals and groups to purchase at £1.50 per litre.
To pick up paint for your project, simply visit the scheme during its opening hours.
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.
If you are a householder and have usable paint to donate, please contact the scheme to arrange an appointment to drop off your leftover paint. Please only visit the scheme during opening hours and do not leave paint at the scheme outside of its opening hours.
