Cambridgeshire Community RePaint

CCORRN's Community RePaint project has been up and running since January 2011 and is a collaborative scheme between CCORRN, Amey and Cambridgeshire County Council.

The national project sponsored by Dulux aims to prevent surplus, usable paint from entering the waste stream and diverting it to those who need it most; charities, community groups, schools, organisations and individuals.

Millions of litres of usable paint are disposed of each year, and Community RePaint aims to find a loving home for all the perfectly usable paint.

Community RePaint its an award winning national initiative to prevent usable paints being needlessly landfilled and instead redistributed to those who need it most. To date there are over 60 schemes running across the United Kingdom.

Community RePaint was set up in 1993 by Resource Futures, a not-for-profit environment consultancy and investigated the volume and nature of household hazardous wastes stored by residents in Leeds.

Dulux have sponsored the scheme from its inception, providing technical support to Resource Futures who co-ordinate the scheme to this day.
