General advice and information:

  • if your unwanted paint is good enough for someone else to use, or for general advice and information on paint please visit our A to Z page
  • leave the paint in its original container (as long as it does not leak)
  • if not in the original container, use a clearly marked suitable storage method
  • store in a cool, dry place out of reach of children
  • never pour paint down the drain, as it can pollute local water courses
  • do not put liquid paint into your rubbish bin (dried out water based paint is fine)
  • paint from businesses are not accepted
  • we are not able to collect your paint
  • we will only accept paint in containers which do not leak.
