Disposing of old paint tins (and their contents) can be a costly exercise for trades, recycling centres can’t accept old paint and as a business disposal of commercial waste is restricted at your household waste sites. So how do you get rid of your old paint cans and the left over paint inside them? Johnstone’s Decorator Centres have the answer.
You can now get your old paint tins recycled through Johnstone’s Decorating Centre with its new Paint Exchange service.
As part of the service, the retailer is accepting paint tins of water-based paints from any brand – empty or with paint still in them – and will recycle it when you purchase any paint tin in exchange.
Johnstone’s Decorating Centre will then send any unused paint left in cans to specialist facilities to be made into new paint, and the cans will be recycled into new ones.
A staggering 55 million litres of paint goes into landfill each year, so the Paint Exchange programme will help reduce this amount of waste paint and packaging, while giving painters and decorators an easy and sustainable way to dispose of their old paint cans.
