About the scheme

ISYOU Initiatives run our scheme on the Isle of Wight. They joined the network in 2014. The scheme collects full and part full containers from traders, retailers and manufacturers.

The paint is kept in the basement of the new Aspire project (the old Holy Trinity Church) and is well stocked by the paint they collect. They check & redistribute it to community groups, churches, charities and anyone who may need paint. They ask for is a small donation for the paint to cover some of their costs. Contact them directly to find out more.

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.

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.
