Repak has over 3,000 Member companies, including manufacturers, supermarkets, retailers, restaurants, hotels and other businesses who produce or sell packaging. These companies are committed to meeting their obligations to recycle their packaging and help pay for the collection of Ireland’s household recycling bins. Repak members have helped fund the recycling of over 11.8 million tonnes of packaging waste in Ireland since 1997. Many have now signed up to our Repak Members’ Plastic Pledge.
Below are useful tips for helping you to recycle correctly. You can also join Team Green to play your part in plastic recycling.
Repak is a not-for-profit packaging recycling scheme funded by contributions from over 3,000 participating Member companies. Since 1997, Irish businesses have invested over €425 million through Repak to support packaging recycling in Ireland and, with our Members, Repak has helped to grow packaging recycling and recovery from under 15% in 1997 to and estimated 93% in 2018.
Repak funds the recovery and recycling of packaging waste collected by Repak-approved ‘Registered Recovery Operators’, who are waste management companies and Local Authorities that provide waste management services to the commercial and domestic sectors.
