What to do with your paint

Newlife Paints take all waste emulsion and recycle it. It is the only proper recycling of emulsion in Europe! The recycling of waste emulsion, whilst being beneficial to the environment, enables us to provide a high quality product at a competitive price.

Community Re>Paint is unique in Britain and probably in Europe. It is one of the most innovative and practical waste minimisation/re-use initiatives in the UK and represents an extremely novel solution to the problem of left over paint.

Over 300 million litres of paint are sold in the UK to the DIY market and to trade decorators. Approximately 37.5 million litres of DIY and 2.5 million litres of trade paint remain unused and there could be as much as 100 million litres of paint stored in homes across the UK. The paint tends to be stored and then disposed of in landfill sites.


Community Re>Paint provides a practical solution to this waste stream that is environmentally and socially beneficial.
