Paintback® is taking unwanted paint and packaging’s colourful past to a brighter future of responsible disposal and innovative reuse. As a voluntary product stewardship scheme that has operated in all States and Territories of Australia from day one, it is a world-first initiative designed to keep unwanted paint out of landfill and away from vital waterways. Most importantly, Paintback is driven by the Australian paint industry – by the major companies that supply around 95% of all the architectural and decorative (A&D) paint sold in Australia. DuluxGroup, Haymes Paint, PPG, Resene and Valspar are the founding members. These companies have collaborated with Commonwealth, State and Local governments to provide a nationally consistent collection service for households and commercial painters. Paintback repurposes valuable materials into recycled packaging, alternative energy and industrial processes, and is funding research to find better uses for unwanted paint.
