Need Paint?

Then visit us at Community RePaint Black Country

We have an ever changing stock of a wide range of paints and colours comprised of full and part tins that are all tested and perfectly fit for use, which we provide at a fraction of the cost for individuals, families, organisations and communities to benefit from. We make paint available to all to avoid it ending up in landfill!

What is Community RePaint Black Country?

Community RePaint Black Country collect and accept unwanted, surplus paint that would be heading for landfill and makes it available to individuals, families, communities and community focused organisations, improving the wellbeing of people and the appearance of places across the Black Country. In doing so we provide social, environmental and economic benefits.

In 2015 across the UK the Community RePaint scheme collected over 432,000 litres of paint from householders, traders and paint manufacturers and redistributed to some 2,477 organisations and over 31,000 individuals.

Community RePaint Black Country is one of the 76 paint re-use schemes, which make up the UK wide network, redistributed over 337,000 litres of paint, the largest amount since the network was formed in 1993.

How does Community RePaint work?

RePaint Black Country is run within the SCARF building. Paint is sorted and stored at our Colliery Rd. premises. Once the cans have been checked for quality then the paint is made available on our shelves from £1 per litre. We can never guarantee colours or quantities as all paint is donated, but we suggest measuring the area you are decorating and coming along to have a look what we have in stock.

Who runs Community RePaint?

Community RePaint Black Country is part of a nationally run community RePaint organisation managed by Resource Futures, an employee-owned, non-profit distributing environmental consultancy. The Network has been sponsored by Dulux since its inception in 1993 and forms part of Dulux's ongoing sustainability programme.

Please Note - We CANNOT provide a list of available colours on request!
Our paint changes so often you have to come in to see what's here now and avoid any dissapointment.

Donate Paint?

The people and businesses who donate their paint to us often tell us that it’s much cheaper for them to give it to us than it is to have it disposed of. Plus, by donating you’re doing something positive for the environment and for the community too!
