Recycle your paint to help community groups

UNUSED and unwanted paint could be recycled to help community groups.

Rutland County Council has set up a paint re-use scheme which aims to prevent unwanted but re-usable paint from ending up in landfill.

Householders with a valid permit for the county’s tips are being encouraged to take any unwanted paint to the Cottesmore tip to be given to community groups.

Paints accepted for the re-use scheme include emulsion paint, eggshell paint, satin paint, undercoat, primer and other water based paints.
