A MARCH based paint recycling project has been donated more than 400 litres of paint by an East Anglian building company.

Bennett Homes, which is headquartered at Nowton, near Bury St Edmunds, handed the paint, worth more than £2,000, to the March-based Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network (CCORRN) to be distributed to individuals and community groups through its Get Painted Scheme.

The paint will be used in a range of refurbishment projects.

Marcus Pheasant, Development Director at CCORRN said: “We really value the support of Bennett Homes and we will ensure that this paint ends up on walls, not in landfill so that together we can paint a brighter Cambridgeshire”.

CCORRN sorts, grades and prepares the paint for reuse so that householders and community groups can access good quality paint that they would otherwise not be able to afford.
