Why is paint hazardous waste?

Every business within Preston has a legal obligation to ensure their hazardous waste is disposed of safely and legally.

Waste is considered ‘hazardous’ under the government’s environmental legislation (see here) when it contains substances or has properties that may make it harmful to human health or the environment. This does not necessarily mean it is an immediate risk to human health, although some waste can be.

Paint is classified as hazardous waste due to the heavy metals such as Mercury and Cadmium (has a relatively high density and is toxic or poisonous at low concentrations) it contains as well as gloss paint being flammable.

What happens to the paint?

After we collect the paint from your Preston businesses it will be sent for processing at a relevant plant.

To recycle the paint, it will be pumped into tanks consisting of the same colour and have additives and colourants added as necessary before being finely filtered and packaged for sale. Alternatively, the paint will be made into a product that is used in manufacturing cement, thereby recycling 100% of the original paint.
