If I did a lot of decorating I would, if possible,  buy paint in tins then recycle it through the Dulux can recycling scheme. The following was copied from their website

It’s easy to recycle with Dulux Decorator Centres
We’re all aware of the need to recycle cans – there’s no sense in waste and landfill just isn’t an option with a future.
The pressing need to providing a viable, sustainable alternative for UK industry has led directly to Dulux Decorator Centres’ Can Recycling Service. And crucially, it’ms a scheme that also adds up in business terms. Many large decorating contracts now specify that cans must be recycled, so being able to offer a proven, professional recycling policy has the benefits to be a genuine business winner
