Paintback Sustainability

Paintback - Paint Product Stewardship Scheme

Ingeniously building a better future with Australia’s unwanted paint and packaging. Paintback, established in 2016, is an industry-led initiative designed to divert unwanted paint and packaging from ending up in landfill and vital waterways and repurposing to higher value uses. Trade and DIY customers can bring back up to 100L per visit of unwanted paint and packaging to any of our 170 dedicated Paintback collection points nation-wide. Best of all it's FREE to drop off! Paintback is driven by the Australian paint industry and the major companies that supply around 90% of all the architectural and decorative (A&D) paint sold in Australia. Paintback’s founding members are Dulux, Haymes, PPG, Resene and Wattyl. As an independent not-for-profit organisation, Paintback is funded through a 15 cent plus GST per litre levy on eligible products, between 1 litre and 20 litres inclusive. Along with responsibly dealing with the end-of-life for unwanted paint, Paintback is committed to researching new ways to repurpose unwanted paint materials and help develop a circular economy. Paintback operates throughout all states and territories in Australia, with over 86% of the general population a short drive from a paintback location.

Paintback Sustainability Actions

Awareness

Promote education and awareness for Paintback and the responsible disposal of unwanted paint and packaging.

Circular Economy

We are working to recover 90 per cent of unwanted paint and packaging and transform them for use in Australia’s circular economy – where products are re-used or repurposed for other manufacturing or industry processes to keep them circulating instead of being discarded permanently.
