How to dispose of paint

Dispose of leftover paint safely without harming the environment.

  1. Can you re-use it? Storing leftover paint is easy as long as you keep the tins away from direct sunlight and in a frost-free environment. If you only have a small amount remaining, pour the leftover paint into old jars. Tip: Leftover whites? Mix them together and use a base coat next time you decorate.

  2. Can someone else re-use it? Pass it on to neighbours or friends, or perhaps a local theatre group or school might find a use for it.

  3. It’s important to remember that you can’t tip paint down the sink or your drains, or put it out with your normal rubbish.
