Since acquiring the company in 2017, we have introduced a number of initiatives to support our efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle, including implementing a recycling programme that has seen at least 50% of our waste diverted from landfill. We ceased using plastic bags entirely, and instead re-use boxes for customers to take their purchases away in.
We offer an option to take waste paint back from customers in order to repurpose it or dispose of it in a responsible way. We also recycle buckets by washing them using our Dulux Envirowash System and give these away free to customers when available.
When we have paint that is not required, we offer it free to community groups, or at an immensely discounted rate to retail customers.
