About the scheme

Shetland Arts work to promote, support and develop art in all forms across Shetland, so enabling local individuals, families and community groups access to purchase affordable paint by hosting a Community RePaint scheme, complements their ongoing work well.

The scheme stocks full and part-full tins of paint passed on for reuse by local householders, traders, retailers and manufacturers, which is then processed and made available for the general public, community groups and charities to purchase, from £2 per litre.

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.

To drop off your leftover paint for reuse: 

Simply drop off your unwanted paint at one of Community RePaint Shetland’s collection points (at the scheme or at the SIC’s Gremista Waste Management Facility) and Community RePaint Shetland will process it. Find out more here.
