No matter how delighted you are with the results of your decorating project, it can be tricky to figure out how to responsibly dispose of the paint and tins you no longer need. Thankfully, there are options to either re-use or recycle your decorating leftovers.
If you’re left with excess paint, consider Community RePaint, one of our partners for over 30 years. This network of non-profit organisations collects local leftover paint and redistributes it for a very low cost to charities, community groups and those in social need. Visit their website to see how to find a drop-off point near you.
Some of our paint product packaging, such as the metal or plastic lids from any of our products, can be placed in household recycling. Dry and empty metal packs are accepted at most local recycling points, though recycling services vary for plastic packs – check online to see the nearest recycling facility and their guidelines. Additionally, many decorative merchants, including our Dulux Decorator Centres also offer free can recycling services.
We’ve also been developing new recycling solutions for our roller testers, such as the Dulux Tester Takeback scheme, trialling in selected stores across key retailers.
