COMMUNITY REPAINT SCHEME

31st Oct 2017

Community RePaint is a national paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that aims to collect leftover paint and redistribute it to benefit individuals, families, communities and charities in need. Currently the network is made up of over 70 schemes and redistributes over 330,000 litres of paint each year. No two schemes are the same, varying in size, operational set up and motivational drivers but they all have the same vision to create communities where everyone has the opportunity to brighten their spaces and their lives. Our two remanufacturing centres can supply up to 200 litres of emulsion paint, at a cost of between £1.30 – £1.80 per litre, dependent on the quantity and the colour. (As an example, a 5 litres container will cost you between £6.50 and £9.00, and this includes delivery costs).

If you’d like to read all of the interesting stories every few months from our network and keep up to date with Community RePaint, please sign up here.
