Learn more about Paint Recycling in London
Paint disposal includes everything from artists' watercolours to heavy duty outdoor paint, which makes this waste stream much broader than it may first appear. Paint can also be challenging to dispose of due to the variety of chemical compounds used in different types of paint, which all pose a different level of environmental risk depending on the disposal method used. Oil based and water soluble paints are the two main types of paint found in most households for use in primers, undercoats, decorative top coats and varnish. The third main type of solvent based paint includes resins fillers glue and paint used for heavy duty undercoats and protective topcoats commonly used in industrial settings to paint outdoor buildings, vehicles and machinery.
At Wayst we usually provide paint recycling and disposals as part of another household waste removal service such as man and van or general house clearance, although individuals and businesses with large amounts of paint might be better off booking a specific service for their paint removal needs. We accept paint in either a liquid or solid state and we can manage the whole disposal process, and provide you with the relevant hazardous waste consignment note after we have completed the waste transfer.
We operate within a set of guidelines across waste management including paint recycling applying to legislation, quality assurance, health and safety, compliance standards and environmental commitment, which we refer to as the Wayst standards for best practice and effective provision of services. We assess professional service providers against the Wayst standards, using them as a benchmarking tool for further improvement of services, and measuring customer satisfaction.
