recycling empty buckets of paint

    Been painting the outside of the house with 10ltr buckets of Masonry paint, got 4 empty 10 ltr plasic buckets so far. What a shame we arent at the stage with these the same stage we are with electrical waste (WEEE) in that when you have used the paint you cannot return the empty buckets to the builders providers or the retail place you bought the paint from so they could dispose of them (or even give back to the paint manufacturers so they can re-use them, fill them back up again and re sell)

    - that would surely also be beneficial to the paint manufacturers as well if they can re-use the buckets I should imagine because in with the cost of buying paint they must factor in the price of the plastic buckets/containers surely?
