Reusing paint in the community.

Community Repaint SchemeCommunity RePaint is a UK-wide network of over 60 community based organisation collecting reusable, leftover domestic paint from household waste recycling centres, retailers, decorators and the paint trade. This is then passed on to individuals and families in social need, charities, community groups and voluntary groups for art and redecorating projects.

The operation of Community RePaint schemes also provides opportunities for employment, work training and volunteers.

Community Works are one of the 60 nation wide organisations providing this RePaint scheme. Community Centres, playgrounds and gardens, village halls, schools and amateur sports clubs have all benefited from RePaint.

Approximately 366 million litres of paint are sold in the UK each year. It is estimated that 55 million litres are left unused, stored or simply thrown away. Thatís enough to fill 22 Olympic-sized swimming pools!
