About the scheme

This Community RePaint drop-off point is located in Leicestershire County Council’s Whetstone Recycling and Household Waste Site.

If you are a resident within the Leicestershire area and you have leftover paint from your home that you’d like to pass on for reuse, visit this on-site Community RePaint drop-off point at Whetstone Recycling and Household Waste Site.

Paint dropped off at this HWRC is then collected by Community RePaint Loughborough, and made available to individuals and groups in need of affordable paint.

A free permit is required if you would like to drop paint off. Visit the website for the permit here.

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 Leicestershire County 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.

You can also make it available to other people to use by posting it on local reuse sites such as Freegle and Gumtree.
