Each year, an estimated 50 million litres of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK goes to waste. This figure becomes more significant when you consider that it could be reused and repurposed through the Community RePaint network to support individuals and families in need as well as a variety of community groups.
Across the UK our schemes work with local authorities, manufacturers, retailers and business to collect leftover, reusable paint, offering a viable alternative to paint disposal. They also work with housing associations, local authorities and charity retailers to provide paint for their tenants, the properties they manage or the shops they run.

Following government guidelines, the majority of the Community RePaint schemes and drop-off points remain closed.
A very small number of schemes are offering a paint delivery service only, so please telephone or email the scheme directly to see if they are doing this.
We hope that everyone stays safe and our schemes look forward to seeing you all very soon when business is back to normal.
Please follow strict government guidelines and only complete essential tasks.
