Where to buy surplus paint

Buying surplus paint will save you on average £4-5 a litre compared to purchasing new paint.  The environmental impact can also be felt with a reduction of 2.4kg of C02 emissions per litre used.

• Kitchen and bathroom paint
• Paint for interior and exterior wood and metal (gloss, satinwood and eggshell)

Recycled paint is available in a wide range of colours and sizes – from 750ml to 15 litres.  A range of ‘as new’ paint donated from commercial sources is also available.

We have a high demand for white and magnolia emulsion paint so occasionally have a limited supply of these types of paint. However, we always have a stock of emulsions, glosses, satinwoods and eggshells in a wide range of colours for up to 80% cheaper when compared to buying new paint from commercial DIY stores.

If you are an organisation or individual interested in working in partnership to sell Recycled paint supplied by FRP, please contact paint@frponline.org.uk or 020 8539 9076 to discuss potential ways we could collaborate.

    I have just been commissioned to paint donated furniture which is then sold on to the.public through a chain of charity shops. Am I eligible to buy paint from you?
