Council are now working in partnership with Community RePaint to divert full or partially full paint tins to our residents for local community and school projects.
About the scheme
Our scheme in Mid and East Antrim is run by Council. It is operated through the network of local Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) – Waveney Road HRC, Redlands HRC and Sullatober HRC. At these sites, you can drop off leftover paint from your home or collect paint for your home or local project.
Drop off leftover paint
If you are a resident within Mid and East Antrim borough and you have leftover paint from your home that you’d like to pass on for reuse, visit the drop-off point on-site at the three above HRCs, to leave your paint.
Groups and individuals will then be able to access the site to collect the paint and use it locally. Find opening times for the household waste recycling centre here.
As this drop-off point is run by the Council, the site is unable to accept paint donations from businesses. If you are a trader, retailer, manufacturer or other business with leftover paint, click here to find out how you can donate your leftover paint for reuse through the Community RePaint network.
Please note, if you live outside Mid and East Antrim borough, you will not be eligible to access the site. If there is no drop-off point in your local borough, you will need to contact your local Council for guidance on what to do with your leftover paint.
Collect paint for your home or project
If you are an individual or group from the local area you can get free paint from this scheme.
If you would like to know what volume and range of paint colours we have at your local HRC, please visit them in person to browse what is on offer. The HRC staff will guide you to the RePaint shed on site.
