Overview of Recycling Services
Repak is Ireland’s only packaging and packaging waste compliance scheme.
The company was established to fundamentally undertake two functions that are:-
- To raise funds from obligated major producers placing packaging on the Irish market who join and pay the scheme each year.
- In return, Repak discharges its members legal packaging and packaging waste compliance obligations. A major obligation of which is the recovery and recycling of packaging waste. The funds that are collected each year are used to cost effectively contribute towards the recovery and recycling target that is set each year.
This part of the website “Recycling Services” is designed as a communication tool to primarily provide information on the Repak Payment Scheme (RPS).
The Collections Department of Repak undertakes the management of the RPS to all registered Service Providers. “Service Providers” consist of legitimate waste management companies and Local Authorities that own and control their services to collect and recycle packaging waste.
