About the scheme

Our scheme in Ealing is run by Ealing Council. 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.

Due to health and safety guidelines set by Ealing Council, pedestrians are not allowed on-site to drop off or pick up paint, please make sure you enter the site in a vehicle and book a timeslot to visit the site here.

Drop off leftover paint

If you are a resident within Ealing and you have leftover paint from your home you can use the drop-off point on-site to leave your paint. Groups and individuals will then be able to access the site to collect the paint and use it locally.

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 the Ealing Council local authority area, 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.

If you would like to make it available to other people to use you can post it on local reuse sites such as Freegle and Gumtree.

Collect paint for your home or project

If you are an individual or group from the local area, you can pick up FREE paint from this scheme. We recommend that you contact the local authority using the details given above or check their website for more details on the process you need to follow to collect paint from this site.
