The Paint Place: our paint re-use project

Part of the national Community RePaint network, The Paint Place collects unwanted, leftover paint from Re-use & Recycling Centres and commercial companies across London.  All paint is sorted, quality checked and available to all as a low cost ‘green’ alternative to buying new paint.

FRP Paint Stocks:

• Emulsion paint for walls and ceilings (vinyl matt, soft sheen and silk)
• Kitchen and bathroom paint
• Paint for interior and exterior wood and metal (gloss, satinwood and eggshell)
• Undercoats and primers
• Masonry paint for exterior brickwork
• Varnishes and wood stains (Clear/Coloured)
Floor and tile paint
• Cupboard/Melamine Primers and Topcoat paints

Reclaimed paint is available in all colours and sizes from FRP locations (click for opening times) in Leytonstone and Walthamstow starting from £1 per litre (click here for all prices).

To help decide the quantity and type of paint you need download our Guide to Choosing Reclaimed Paint 

Open to trade and public. 

Please note: We do not accept paint donations from customers.
