Reducing Your Waste

We can’t stand waste!

 

Did you know that we provide a range of services to help you minimise the waste you create when decorating and even cut your waste costs? If not find out here how we can help you minimise your waste and responsibly manage leftover paint, empty cans and dirty brushes and rollers. On big jobs we can even help you minimise the amount of water needed to clean brushes and rollers out.

Community RePaint

Give leftover paint a life beyond your walls

 

Over 25 years ago, Dulux helped establish Community RePaint, a national network of non-profit schemes across the UK who collect leftover paint and redistribute it to community groups and those in social need - ensuring that the paint is not only reused but that it also has a positive social impact. In this 25 years Community Repaint has passed on over 4 million litres of paint and coloured 5 million lives.

Recycling Cans

Packaging accounts for about 10-20% of the total environmental footprint of a can of paint. However, after use most cans are still traditionally disposed of via general waste meaning they either end up in landfill or being incinerated.
