How Can I Get Rid of Old Household Paint?

Leicestershire County Council operate a paint resuse scheme from Whetstone Recycling and Household Waste Site. Paints that are partially dry or mixed with other paints cannot be reused; gloss paints cannot be accepted due to the flammability of these products. Only clean, water based paint can be accepted.

All of Leicestershire's Household Waste Sites, commonly known as tips are licensed to accept paint for disposal. The paint however, must be completely dried. This allows the site to dispose of any paint, gloss or otherwise, that members of the public bring to the site.

For further information about anything to do with Leicestershire's household waste sites please contact the County Council on 0116 305 0001, or visit
