Crown Paints make community contribution for Enfield paint project

A partnership between Crown Paints, Mitie Property Services and Enfield Council has led to a special presentation for residents.

For the last two years, the three organisations have been working together on redecoration works across Enfield Council’s property portfolio.

To mark the milestone, a bench made from recycled paint containers has been given to the community by Crown Paints.

Some 4,000 litres of products including Crown Trade Stronghold Smooth Masonry, Crown Trade Protective Coatings, Sadolin Superdec and Crown Trade Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings have all been used on the council’s social housing schemes.

As part of the works, paint containers used on the project are being recycled by Crown Paints to give them a new lease of life.

The process starts with the containers being taken to Crown’s network of Crown Decorating Centres.

They are then reprocessed by a social enterprise NIMTEC at the paint manufacturer’s Lancashire headquarters – and the recycled material is then used to make street furniture such as the recycled bench donated to Enfield.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing & Housing Regeneration, Cllr Ahmet Oykener, said: “I would like to thank Crown Paints and Mitie Property Services for the fantastic facelift that they have given to our housing blocks.

“The additional donation of the bench will also be welcomed by our residents, who will be able to sit outside together and enjoy the beautiful gardens.”
