Current Recovery Operators
Repak registered Recovery Operators provide the collection of packaging waste from households/commercial sources as well as mixed/source segregated recyclable materials deposited at bring centers and civic amenity sites throughout ROI. The Irish Waste Management industry has invested significantly, with help from Repak and its members, in recycling/recovery facilities and machinery to ensure that recyclable material is segregated into individual material types and sent for recycling or recovery.
All materials entering such facilities are monitored for quantities of individual material types, their source and the packaging content of each material type, which is reported to Repak, which in turn provides subsidy payments to Recovery Operators who collect packaging waste and provide this information. Using the information provided, Repak assist in compiling national packaging waste recycling and recovery statistics which are used to determine Ireland’s recycling and recovery performance.
