How the scheme works
Once collected in store, cans are brought back to one of our manufacturing sites – on lorries which have delivered stock to store, thus meaning no additional transpiration is required – where the reprocessing work begins.
The process for all the paint packaging can be broken down into 3 simple steps for recycling:
Scrape out paint remnants
Leave to ensure completely dry
Bale to go to recyclers
From there the metal and plastic makes its way to one of our third party suppliers, where the materials and recycled into new products for onward use.
At Crown Paints, we are extremely proud of the great work we are doing across the business to be as sustainable as possible in our day to day. We’d love for all our customers to help us on our mission too. Ask your local sales person how you can be involved today!
