About the scheme
Managed by The Derby Play and Recycling Centre, Community RePaint Derby has been part of the network since 2000, making it one of our oldest schemes. The majority of their paint comes from a local recycling centre where they collect paint which has been dropped off by local residents. They will also consider other paint available locally from traders, retailers and manufacturers.
The scheme was created to help community groups and people who are on low incomes, or who are in receipt of benefits. To use the scheme you must complete a registration form, sign a disclaimer, and pay a one-time registration fee of £3. A donation of £2 per litre is required for most paint.
The scheme has a range of colours and types of paint available.
To pick up paint for your project, simply visit the scheme during its opening hours. The best day to visit is on a Tuesday when their whole range is available and someone will be there to assist you.
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.
Please note, if you are looking to pass on your leftover paint for reuse, this scheme does not accept paint donations from householders. Instead, please use our householder drop-off point finder to find out if you have a Community RePaint householder paint drop-off point in your area.
