The national Paint Product Stewardship Scheme Paintback has been launched, and these collection events are being hosted and funded by Paintback.

The Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) is working with Paintback to facilitate the easy disposal of waste paint and packaging from trade painters and householders, through the local government collection event sites noted above.

The events enable people to dispose of architectural and decorative waste paint that’s no longer required.

Paintback accepts up to 100 litres per visit per vehicle, secured in containers of 20 litres or less.

Permanent site

People are also still able to take their waste paint and packaging to the Welshpool Cleanaway Paintback site Monday to Friday, 9am-2pm throughout the year (maximum of 100 litres stowed in up to 20-litre containers per visit).
