Water based paint (emulsion) is accepted, free of charge, at all household waste recycling centres.

Water based paint (emulsion) in metal or plastic tins is not currently reused or recycled and should be placed in the landfill skip. Empty metal emulsion paint tins can be placed in the scrap metal skip for recycling.

Oil based paint cannot be taken to the sites and should be treated as hazardous waste. Please contact us to arrange a collection.

If you have no use for these items please pass them on to someone else who might use them.
