In the past we have removed and disposed of paint for customers all over Auckland. Sadly, our policy has changed and we no longer accept full or half full paint cans.

The good news is we can still remove and dispose of your empty old paint cans and paint cans with a SMALL amount of paint in it.

Our number one goal is to help you dispose of your waste in a safe and efficient way. If you have any paint cans with leftover paint that is still useable, Resene Paint shops have a reuse and recycle program set up that takes the paint to community groups that need the paint for projects. You can go to their website resene.co.nz for more information and to support a good cause.

Another company that helps dispose, reuse and recycle paint is Dulux paint. Their Paint Take-Back Service means you can return your left-over paint to any Dulux Trade Centre and selected Guthrie Bowron stores and they will decide whether it can be reused, if not they will dispose of it in an environmentally safe way. If you would like more information about this service go to painttakeback.co.nz.

On the other hand, paint can last for around 10 years, if stored properly. Which means you can save your paint and use it for later, or ask your friends if they need any paint for their walls. You never know who might be planning a room makeover.

If you have other junk and rubbish that you need to dispose of, don’t hesitate to call us or email us. We remove single items, garden waste, wooden pallets, general household items and donate reusable items to charity stores.
