Recycle that paint

14 Nov 2013

It’s Recycling Week NZ so take the opportunity while you’re spring cleaning to take any unwanted paint and paint containers into your local Resene ColorShop so they can be recycled or disposed of responsibly. Resene will offer good quality Resene paint to community groups for reuse, recycle packaging materials that are recyclable, send solventborne paints to solvent recovery, find alternative uses for waterborne paints, such as graffiti abatement, and dispose of the rest for you.

Selected Resene ColorShops have been designated as Resene PaintWise Collection Centres. You are welcome to bring back any brand of decorative paint but a small charge applies to non-Resene branded product and trade returns to help offset the costs of the PaintWise programme.

For more information about Recycling Week NZ see for a short cartoon video which highlights the problems we are facing and provides useful advice on what can be done to help solve them.
