Paint and chemical disposal

Paint disposal

We can dispose of paint from households and commercial customers through the National Paintback Scheme. This free service is available at all our waste and recycling facilities.

Containers with a combined volume of up to 100 litres can be dropped off per visit.

We accept:

  • paint
  • deck coatings
  • primers
  • sealers
  • stains
  • shellacs
  • varnishes, and

We have separate areas for water-based and oil-based products. Please check the containers label and place them in the appropriate area.

If you would like to dispose of more than 100 litres at a time, please contact Cleanaway.
