About the scheme

Our scheme in Richmond is run by the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. 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.

Drop off leftover paint

If you are a resident living within the Richmond Upon Thames area, and you have leftover paint from your home, you can use the drop-off point on-site to pass on your paint for reuse. Groups and individuals will then be able to access the site to collect the paint and use it locally.

A booking system is in place for Townmead Recycling Centre, enabling people to book their slot in advance and avoid lengthy queues. Visitors arriving without a booking will be turned away and not be allowed entry. Please note there is no pedestrian access to the site. Click here to find out more and to book an appointment to visit this site.

Please note, if you live outside of Richmond Upon Thames, 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.

Collect paint for your home or project

If you are an individual or group living within the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, 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 get the paint.
