Paint and Paint Product Recycling

If you have paint or paint packaging that you no longer want or need, you can now return it to Resene PaintWise, located at 87 Gorge Road, Queenstown.

You are welcome to return any brand of decorative paint.  A small charge will apply for non-Resene branded products and trade returns to help offset the costs of the PaintWise programme.

Prices: $1 per 4 litre can or smaller, $2.50 per 10 litre pail or larger

Please note that automotive and marine paints are excluded.

Resene recycles the packaging materials that are recyclable, sends the solventborne paints to solvent recovery, provides the waterbased paints for community projects such as covering grafitti and other uses, such as PaintCrete.

See the Resene website, for more information on the service and what can be returned
