Northside Community Enterprises


Paint Reuse



With our:


Civic Amenity Site partnerships



Northside Community Enterprises launched an environmentally friendly paint re-use service. The project is in partnership with Cork City Council and Cork County Council. Revive Paint at NCE recues donated left over water-based paint from 2 Civic Amenity sites in and around Cork City and recycle it into premium quality paint for homeowners, community groups, contractors, and painters. We filter, recolour and mix it into new, one-of-a-kind colours. Our premium quality paint is available for all the community (homeowners, community groups, contractors, and painters) at very affordable prices.

The Mission for Revive Paint NCE is both Social and Environmental:

  • We create training, work experience and meaningful employment opportunities, in a supportive environment, for our participants in NCE Outreach.
  • We redirect waste paint from landfill back to consumers through our mixing, rebrand, retail and distribution operations.

Revive paint NCE is available for sale in our shop in NCE Farranferris. Google maps . Please call for 021 4228123 for more information. This project comes as part of NCE’s commitment to being community leaders in eco-friendly initiatives.
