Rediscover Paint is a paint reuse scheme run by the Rediscovery Centre. We collect and sort for reuse paint that would otherwise go to waste and then make it available to collect for reuse.
What we do
All paint from Rediscover Paint is offered at a minimal cost and for a fraction of the price of new paint, making it very affordable. Any money received is used to help the Rediscovery Centre in continuing to serve the local community.

Ways to Reuse Paint
Usually we have a range of different colours in our paint store, which are especially good for schools, community groups and youth projects. The types and colours of paint vary all the time. For example in this picture some community artists are using paint from Rediscover Paint to create a mural at a Festival of World Cultures event in Dún Laoghaire.
