The UK's Paint Reuse Network

Community RePaint schemes collect reusable, leftover paint and re-distribute it to individuals, families, communities and charities in need, improving the wellbeing of people and the appearance of places across the UK.

Each year over 300 million litres of paint (retail and trade) are sold in the UK. Of this, it is estimated that approximately 50 million litres are unused, stored in homes or garages or just thrown away. That's enough paint to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

We see 'waste paint' as a resource (as long as it is reusable) so do your bit for the environment and your local community by donating your leftover paint to us! 

Or if you need paint for a redecoration or art project then use our postcode locator to find your nearest Community RePaint scheme.

In 2013 the Community RePaint national network:

• saved 410, 148 litres of paint, donated by householders and businesses, from going to waste 

 and redistributed over 245,000 litres of paint to community groups, charities, voluntary organisations and people in social need.

In doing so the Community RePaint network, managed by the environmental consultancy, Resource Futures, provides social, environmental and economic benefits.
