Our new scheme in Loughborough took their first visit to collect leftover paint from householders.

They collected paint from Leicestershire Recycling Centre, where householders have dropped paint off. This leftover paint can now be reused by community groups and individuals in need, instead of going to waste.

The average household has 17 part used paint tins stored in cupboards, garden sheds and garages.

If you have leftover paint that you would like to be reused, find your nearest drop off point here.
