2017 - Paint recycling returns to Ipswich Crown Decorating Centre

From the 1st to the 30th April 2017, the Kick Out The Can initiative will allow people to take surplus paint to their local Crown Decorating Centre in Trinity Street, Ipswich, for recycling.

The paint collected in-store is re-processed by social enterprise company Nimtech and then donated to community projects. The scheme has seen more than 2,000 litres of paint given to scores of deserving schemes right across the UK.

Leftover plastic and metal paint containers are also recycled as part of the scheme.

Householders can return up to ten containers of any decorative paint to their nearest Crown Decorating Centre on any single visit between 1st - 30th April. Paint must be in the original container with the lid securely attached and no foreign objects or substances in the cans. Aerosols and rusty cans cannot be accepted.
