Repak for Schools


WIN €1,000 for your School!

Repak has created the ‘Recycle and Change for the Better’ educational programme to encourage best recycling practices and in response to the rising levels of recycling bin contamination in Ireland. Up to 40% of what is currently placed in recycling bins is contaminated and with new EU recycling targets, which are expected to be higher, Repak has taken this proactive step to address the issue and hopes the programme will change student attitudes and behaviours, transforming participating pupils into enthusiastic recycling ambassadors, influencing their family and friends in turn.

Creating the Repak Schools Programme would not be possible without the help of our members. Repak has over 2,300 members who fund packaging recycling in Ireland. These members pay a fee to Repak based on the levels of packaging they place on the market, which Repak uses to fund the recycling industry and educational programmes, like the schools one.

We want to give you the opportunity to win €1,000 to spend at a Repak member store of the school’s choosing, to help with the needs your school may have. Perhaps you need new computer or sports equipment, stationary for the classrooms or furniture for the school. A full list of members is available on our website.

To enter, simply show us how your school or class has used Repak’s Recycle and Change for the Better programme to encourage best recycling practices amongst students and the wider school. We have posters, colouring sheets, videos and lessons plans all available to download on our website. Entries should include a minimum of 4 photos and 300 words explaining how you have utilised the programme. This can be a group effort amongst the whole school, or an individual class. The entry can be in English or as Gaeilge.

Please send entries to by May 31st 2018.

Winners will be chosen and contacted by June 15th 2018
