Architectural paint recycling

Find out how to dispose of water or solvent (oil) based architectural paint.

Architectural paint recycling service is available at Beerwah, Buderim, Caloundra and Nambour Resource Recovery Centres.

As part of the Paintback recycling program, there is an allocated drop off area at each centre. Please ask the Recycling Attendants for directions to the drop off point.

Council has partnered with Paintback, a program run by the Australian paint industry and major paint companies. The major paint companies involved supply about 95% of all architectural and decorative paint sold in Australia. Paintback collects unwanted paint and packaging for disposal and reuse. For more information please refer to the Paintback website.
