*Original labelled/printed packaging is accepted if rusty provided it is in the original packaging, the product description and handling information are still easily legible, and the contents match the packaging.
Please ensure lids can be easily removed for checking. For health and safety reasons, if the lid cannot be removed easily and safely the item may be rejected. Due to DG requirements, there is a volume limit of recycled paints/stains that Resene can hold at one time. At times Resene may not be able to accept products and may ask you to return them on another day. Resene PaintWise reserves the right to refuse any returns.
