How to recycle your paint and tins?

Take your unwanted tins of paint - containing paint, or empty to any of the Council’s five Recycling Centres.

  • empty metal tins can be recycled at the centres along with all other metal scrap - paint tins should NEVER be placed into your recycling bags or black bags
  • tins containing paint can be donated at the centres - these will be passed on to community groups free of charge

Free paint for community groups!

Recycled paint is available for use by community groups FREE of charge, so that it can be reused to transform community centres, football changing rooms, brownies and scout halls and lots more!

If you are a community group and you would like to access free paint through the recycling scheme please call on:
