Our Recycling Centres can’t take paint where the tins or tubs still have liquid paint in them. You would need to contact a specialist waste contractor. We will take tins or tubs where they are completely dried out. If there’s any residue you can either fill it with sand, or leave the lid off to dry it out.

Girvan Household Waste Recycling Centre staff operate Bodyworn CCTV for the purpose of Health and Safety to our staff and also members of the public. The information that may be recorded include Voice recordings, Images and Vehicle Registrations. The information gathered will only be used for the purpose of investigations and information will be held for 30 days in accordance with South Ayrshire Council Data Protection Law.
