Paint Reuse

As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce waste, All Waste Matters are pleased to announce further paint recycling options for our customers.
Much of the water based paint we now receive will be diverted from waste to energy plants.

Having already committed to a zero waste paint to landfill policy since 2017, we are extremely excited to be now reducing our paint disposal further.
Paint suitable for cleaning and reuse will be processed and reused. Turning it back into new paint.
NB. this is not always possible due to the condition of the paint. This will now be our preferred disposal route whenever possible.
Presently Hazardous waste, which covers gloss and industrial paints, will still be treated as fuel for waste to energy plants.

However, we are aiming to introduce a similar reuse scheme for all liquid paint by the end of 2020. This will include solvent based paints.
Millions of litres of usable paint ends up in landfill and incineration plants each year and we’re at the very forefront of trying to reverse this.

Much of our waste paint is collected from Household Waste Recycling Centres. Thousands of unwanted paint tins are disposed of at these local authorities sites.
Alternative community repaint schemes are available to the general public.

Charities such as Community repaint accept paint donation as part of their paint reuse schemes.

To find your nearest scheme please contact your local council or visit community repaint here.

We've just signed a new 2 year contract for all our  waste disposal requirements.
They consistently perform and it was really a no brainer.
