Donate unwanted paint so it can be re-used locally

Published: 20 October 2022

Community repaint allows residents to drop paint off at the household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) at Newbury and Padworth, where it is assessed by staff to see if it is in good enough condition to re-use. If it is, it will be placed in the community repaint area at Newbury HWRC where it can be collected, free of charge, by householders.

At the moment, paint can be collected only from the Newbury HWRC, but this service is also to be made available soon at Padworth.

The scheme is open only to householders, not to traders, retailers or manufacturers.

More information can be found on West Berkshire Council’s website.
