About the scheme
Our Community RePaint West Berkshire scheme at the Padworth Recycling Centre is run by Veolia West Berkshire. At this site, you can drop off leftover paint from your home or collect paint for your home or local project.
You must book a timeslot online (in advance) to visit this recycling centre and register for an online permit before you visit. Click here for more information.
Drop off leftover paint
If you are a resident of West Berkshire, you can drop off paint at the recycling centre by appointment – click here to book your timeslot to visit the site.
When you arrive on site, please ask a member of staff to direct you to the Community RePaint drop-off area. Your paint will be sorted and liquid paint in its original container, in good condition that is at least half full will be put out for reuse. Hazardous paint (check the symbols on the tin) and spray paint is not accepted by the Community Repaint Scheme at present.
Groups and individuals will then be able to access the site to collect the paint and use it locally.
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 West Berkshire 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. If you would like to make it available to other people to use you can post it on local reuse sites such as Freegle and Gumtree.
Collect paint for your home or project
Residents and community groups can turn up to Padworth’s Household Waste Recycling Centre to pick up free paint from this scheme. Click here to book your timeslot to visit the site.
