Paint Recycling Continues to Soar in the United Kingdom


Amidst the booming sales, paint manufacturers in Britain are breaking industry records when it comes to paint recycling.

In research released by the British Coatings Federation (BCF), factories are now recycling paints and coatings four times more than what they were 19 years ago. The recorded waste going to landfill has declined to only 2.8 kilograms per ton of production compared to 1996’s output of almost 50 kilograms.
