A paint tin containing paint can be taken to your local household waste recycling centre to be disposed of. It is preferable that the paint is dry and hardened before visiting. Sites will accept wet paint, but usually only up to 5 litres.

To dry the paint out, you can leave the lid off the container before bringing it to the centre. You can also add cat litter or sawdust to the paint to assist in the drying process.

No commercial paint or large tins will be accepted.

The tins can be put into the 'household waste' container as there are currently no re-use or recycling facilities for this waste.

Empty metal paint cans can be put in the metal container for recycling.

Usually part of your recycling collection – check with your local council.
