Household Plastic Paint Container Recycling Trial

The recycling trial was linked with an existing Community RePaint scheme to recycle plastic paint containers already being collected for paint extraction. The trial concentrated on; collection, preparation, transportation, operational logistics, reprocessing and moulding into new containers. Each element of this process was investigated taking account of external considerations and possible future commercial viability of recycling plastic paint containers.

The recycling trial was delivered through a consortium approach, and the partners and their roles were:

●              RECOUP - Overseeing the project and facilitation.

●              Resource Futures - Project management/supplier of empty plastic containers via Community Repaint scheme

●              AkzoNobel - Producer responsibility and sole sponsor of Community RePaint..

●              RPC - Interested in recyclate for new plastic paint containers. Trial and moulding of material to investigate closed loop solutions.

●              B & Q/Kingfisher - Communication & promotion of recycling paint containers.

The trial concentrated on; collection, preparation, transportation, operational logistics, reprocessing and moulding into new containers. Each element of this process was investigated taking account of external considerations and possible future commercial viability of recycling plastic paint containers.
