Seagulls Re-Use

Seagulls is a social enterprise specialising in the reuse of leftover and unwanted paint. We have been collecting paint from Leeds City Council Household Waste Sites for 11 years and have collected 1600 tonnes to date. We have a contract with Leeds City Council for the collection, redistribution and disposal of household paint. In 2015 we reused 170 tonnes of paint and have built a thriving enterprise around its collection and redistribution.. We process the paint in our main warehouse (based centrally in Leeds) and sell paint from this base and a satellite shop in another part of the city. We also sell value for money decorating equipment.

Seagulls is a busy people and planet centred Social Enterprise. We started with 3 main aims (and continue to remain true to them:

  1. To generate income and be a self-sustaining enterprise.
  2. To divert waste materials away from landfill for the benefit of the Leeds Community.
  3. To create jobs for ourselves whilst providing volunteering, training and employment opportunities for marginalised people across Leeds.

We also run a volunteer programme. Volunteering underpins the whole organisation, it is the reason Seagulls was developed. We work with up to 50 volunteers per year who range in age, with many varied reasons as to why they find it difficult to engage with society and employment: – ex offenders, young people with learning disabilities, long term unemployed and people living with a mental health problem.
