About me
Forest Recycling Project (FRP) is a social enterprise and charity with environmental and social aims. We engage with organisations and communities in London through a range of practical initiatives to reduce, re-use and recycle waste, and help people live sustainably. Based in Walthamstow in East London, we have been in operation since 1989. All our work and activities are supported by volunteers.

The Paint Place: FRP collects surplus, leftover paint from Re-use & Recycling Centres and commercial companies. The paint is then sorted, quality-checked, re-mixed if need be, and sold as a ‘green’, low-cost alternative to new paint, including for lower income customers, community groups, charities and not-for-profit organisations.
