What we do
Repak is a not for profit company set up by Irish business and owned by its members. Repak charges fees to its members in accordance with the amount and type of packaging they place on the Irish market. These fees are used to subsidise the collection and recovery of waste packaging through registered recovery operators across Ireland – so that the individual member companies are exempt from this requirement. Repak is approved under licence by the Minister for Communications, Climate Action & Environment, to operate as a compliance scheme for packaging recovery. Since Repak was set up in 1997 packaging recycling in Ireland has grown from a very low base to the point where Ireland is now one of the leading recycling countries in the EU.
In our efforts to ensure a quality service to our stakeholders we have implemented a Management System that meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. Repak Quality Policy.
Our mission is to deliver on behalf of our members, the best environmentally sustainable packaging recovery compliance scheme for Ireland, in accordance with the approval issued by the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government on 3rd October 2013.
To be an organisation that is highly valued by all stakeholders as a compliance scheme achieving targets and recognised as a leading, innovative environmental influencer and educator and an excellent company to work in.
