Paint waste disposal and recycling


Dispose wastes in eco-friendly way

Responsible painting includes appropriate disposal of waste. Recycling is becoming a common practice, and is gaining popularity among customers as new and better ways to recycle become available.

Tikkurila wants to minimize the environmental impact of its products and promote sustainability in painting, and also promote better practices in paint disposal and recycling of packaging. We are also working to further improve our own waste management.

Tikkurila instructs its customers in the correct way to recycle or dispose of painting and packaging waste, as well as in the proper cleaning of tools. Each country adheres to the local practices and legislation.
