Paint donation facility at Lilac Grove, Beeston - HWRC

Community RePaint - Exterior 2

Tins of paint should never be put in your bin at home, unless they are empty or contain only solid dried-up paint residue. When tins of paint from a wheelie bin are crushed in the back of a rubbish truck, the paint can spill onto the street and cause problems.

A much better idea is to donate unwanted paint to a Community Repaint scheme. Lilac Grove, Beeston's - Household Waste and Recycling site now has a paint donation facility. Trained site staff will sort through each tin of paint to check whether it can be put into the reuse scheme.

Tins of paint suitable for reuse are labelled and displayed on shelves in the Community RePaint Nottinghamshire container according to colour and type. Community and voluntary groups registered on the scheme make an appointment to visit the site and can take the donated paint away free of charge.

Tins of paint that cannot be reused, will not be put into the reuse scheme but will be sent for specialist treatment. The metal or plastic containers will also be recycled where possible.
