Why work with us

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.


The benefits
  • Prevent a valuable resource from going to waste
  • Reduce your paint disposal or procurement costs
  • Improve your green credentials
  • Support a local reuse organisation
  • Benefit your local community
  • Generate positive stories
