Get PaintWise with Resene


More than six litres of household paint is sold each year for each and every person here. That's a lot of paint particularly as much of it is left sitting in paint containers and ends up in landfills. There are lots of ways you can reduce this burden on the environment... here's some ideas to get you started:

Resene donates recycled paint to community groups for their activities. If you’re part of a community group that needs paint, click here to find out more and apply.

Be PaintWise!
Bring unwanted paint and paint containers into your local Resene ColorShop and let us recycle or dispose of them responsibly. Resene will offer good quality Resene paint to community groups for reuse, recycle packaging materials that are recyclable, send solventborne paints to solvent recovery, find alternative uses for waterborne paints, such as graffiti abatement, and dispose of the rest for you.

Selected Resene ColorShops have been designated as Resene PaintWise Collection Centres. Drop off your unwanted paint and paint containers to any of these designated Resene ColorShops at any time during their opening hours.

You are welcome to bring back any brand of decorative paint. A small charge applies to non-Resene branded product and trade returns to help offset the costs of the PaintWise programme (25c per litre). Find out more about the PaintWise levy.

Trade customers – recycle your empty Resene pails free at these ColorShops. Resene pails are recycled into more Resene pails. Sorry, we are unable to accept automotive and marine paints.
