The Green Machine, who run Community RePaint East Berkshire, collect over 50,000 litres of paint a year. The majority of their paint comes from local recycling centres where they collect paint which has been dropped off by local residents. Their paint is available to individuals and groups for £1-£2 per litre. Due to the large volumes of paint they receive there is a large variety of colours and types available. If you need paint you can call in to the scheme during their opening hours.
