New re3paint scheme aims to save usable paint from going to waste

Free paint available for residents at re3 Recycling Centres

The re3paint initiative allows residents of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs to take available water-based tins of paint that were deposited at the Recycling Centres and use it for their own projects or to help their local charity and community groups.

By doing so, they can save money on purchasing paint and at the same time help to reduce unnecessary paint waste and its impact on the environment. To ensure health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, all tins of paint that are deemed for reuse will be sanitised before being made available to residents.

More information on the
re3paint scheme is available on the re3 website.


Since the 25 January 2018, our Litter Warden has been out and about in the Parish collecting waste and recycling.  The first month of litter collection has been extremely successful, hopefully you have noticed that Crowthorne is already looking much cleaner… Read More >>

In less than two months Bracknell Forest residents will be able to take advantage of a new food waste recycling scheme, as part of the council’s plans to help tackle climate change and reduce its impact on the environment.

With collections starting from 1 March 2021, residents of houses will be able to recycle all their food waste including cooking oils and leftover pet food. Food waste will then be collected from its outdoor caddy and taken to an anaerobic digestion plant where it’s made into energy and fertiliser…

The Code of Conduct Panel met on Thursday, 28 January, 2021 to consider a Code of Conduct complaint brought against Cllr Richard Price, a Crowthorne Parish councillor. The Panel considered evidence presented to them in a report written by the Investigating Officer, Mr Richard Beaumont, as well as verbal submissions given at the hearing.

Cllr Price had accepted one of the breaches of the Code brought against him in the report, and had apologised for this incident, but felt he was not at fault for the other incidents raised.

The Code of Conduct Panel found Cllr Price had breached the Code of Conduct and concluded his behaviour towards an employee of Crowthorne Parish Council had been unacceptable. The Panel felt a revised apology from him was not a reasonable sanction.

Instead the Panel recommended a number of sanctions, including the removal of Cllr Price from his Finance Champion role, and that he should be prevented from acting as chair of any Crowthorne Parish Council committees or groups for at least one year. A full list of sanctions can be found on our website.

CPC’s Chairman is aware of the press release and does not wish to publish any comment or response on behalf of the Parish Council.
