Community Repaint

A national scheme that takes donated paint from individuals and businesses and then remanufactures it for using again. Community groups can buy large quantities very affordably, but it's also great for individuals repainting a room at home. Drop-off points at Council waste sites and see the map too.

RSPCA recycling

RSPCA charity shops are part of the Terracycle scheme and take specific items for recycling. Check with them for the latest list as some have had to stop taking petfood pouches because they weren't being cleaned before dropping off. You can imagine how nasty that got! Check the map for RSPCA branches and give them a call.
