About the scheme

COVID-19: please contact the scheme direct using the number above to double-check opening times and safety procedures.

Our scheme in Darlington joined the network in 2019. The scheme is hosted by, FRADE, who were established in 1990 and aims to help someone turn their house into a home, and at the same time, divert goods away from landfill. They aim to reduce poverty, reduce waste and provide employment.

They collect full and part full containers from traders, retailers and manufacturers. The paint is available to individuals and groups for £1-2 per litre. The scheme also stocks our remanufactured paint, ReColour. To get the paint you simply need to go along during their opening hours or contact them before visiting.

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