Add a Pop of Colour to Your Shared Community Space

Win FREE paint and be in with a chance of winning €500.

The Rediscovery Centre, in association with the Eastern Midlands Waste Region, is running a competition for community groups, clubs and schools who think they can create the most brave, bold and imaginative make-over of their hall or club house. Rediscover Paint – Rediscover Colour is being run to promote the reuse of perfectly good paint that would otherwise be incinerated or end up in landfill.

The competition is open to groups and organisations in Dublin, Fingal, South Dublin, Dun Laoghaire, Meath, Louth, Laois, Offaly, Westmeath, Wicklow, Longford and Kildare

Entering is easy! Complete the online application form at  by 7th October 2017 and tell us what shared indoor space you will paint and why you should receive your  40 litres of FREE recycled indoor emulsion paint to use in your make-over bid. 

The completed projects will then be judged and the overall winner will receive a €500 cash prize and a year-long membership to the Rediscovery Centre Paint programme.
