Photographer Joanne Segars has documented the work of the Forest Recycling Project who mix, recycle and sell paint
Photographer Joanne Segars has documented the work of Forest Recycling Project (FRP), a charity that has been recycling the borough’s paint, fabrics, wood, and tools since its inauguration in 1989.
FRP has a goal of saving as much paint from the rubbish tip as possible. It does this by collecting usable paint from recycling centres in Waltham Forest and distributing it across the local community, selling it to the public at affordable prices while saving good quality paint from incineration.
The charity sells its reclaimed paint out of its warehouse in The Sidings, near Leyton Midland Road, and from its Bakers Avenue shop in Walthamstow. FRP also runs the popular Walthamstow Tool Library on the Priory Court Estate.
