About the scheme

Our scheme in Loughborough joined the network in 2017 and are hosted by The Exairo Trust and run by the Exaireo Reuse Project. The Exaireo Trust provides temporary supported accommodation and holistic service to single adults that are homeless. Their reuse project including their Community RePaint scheme provides work-based training to all of their residents, helping them to become economically independent in the future.

They collect paint locally from traders, retailers and manufacturers. They also pick up paint from a local Household Waste Recycling Centre. Whetstone Household Waste Recycling Centre (a permit is required) so if you are a householder with leftover paint in the area, please take your paint to the site for collection.ย 

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 youโ€™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.
