Why Join Repak
If your business has a turnover of more than €1 million and places more than 10 tonnes of packaging on the Irish market, you have a legal obligation to fund the recycling of that packaging under Irish and EU Packaging Regulations. Repak provides, not only a cost-effective compliance solution, but also the opportunity to partner with a not-for-profit organisation, with a social mission, helping to transform the environmental landscape in Ireland and driving behavioural change.Learn More
