Waste paint for disposal

Post by wongeye »

I have a few half tins of paint and a 10-litre plastic tub of emulsion to dispose of. Does anyone know where I can take these in the Sunderland area as I need to get rid of them quickly?
I am not sure if old paint can be recycled?
I've checked the Sunderland household waste and recycling website/page but there's no mention of paint.

They take engine oil and that is one mother you need to dispose of properly.
Take it down and see what they say, I am sure they have not listed everything they will take or refuse.

I have taken paint to the dump without a problem.
I was told to dump it in the normal general rubbish skips and that's what I did.
They should take stuff like this because if they didn't there would be wise cracks dumping it all over the place with horrendous results!

Yes, you can take paint to the Sunderland recycle place no bother at all.


I might have the day off today!
