Surface coating, paint and allied products industry is one of the major productions in the world due to the increase of urbanization and rapid development. Paint industry offers a variety of colours and types of paint to serve as needed. However, global production of paint consumption may lead to large volume of waste generated which affects people’s health and creating environmental surroundings such as landfill area, stormwater drainage and natural waterways. Therefore, this paper highlights the application of paint generally in terms of productions, treatment processes and waste management, as well as finding out the necessary steps to be taken to minimise wastes caused by productions. Furthermore, the understanding of these wastes may contribute to reduce the negative environmental impact and provide sustainable development by utilizing and promoting the paint waste as building material.
