In buildings that are very old, it is possible that some of the original paint or primers may still contain lead. Extreme care should be taken with the removal of these coatings. They should not be sanded or burnt. Independent chemical laboratories can test paint flakes for lead. Further information can be obtained from the Environment Protection Agency on 1800 803 772.
Never dispose of unwanted paint by pouring it down household or stormwater drains.
The can, once emptied, can be placed in household recycling bins. Unwanted oil-based paints can be disposed of by pouring the excess onto an absorbent material such as kitty litter, cardboard or shredded paper. Allow to dry and dispose with your normal household waste collection.
Paintback® is an industry initiative to divert architectural and decorative waste paint from landfill by depositing unwanted paint to the local collection points. The scheme enables the collection and treatment of waste paint and waste packaging through participating sites around Australia.
