Repak has launched its second annual Pakman Awards, which aims to reward excellence in waste management and recycling among businesses, organisations, community groups, and individuals in Ireland.
Repak first unveiled the Pakman Awards in 2015, to replace the Repak Recycling Awards, which had only been open to members of the group, and recovery operators. Now all organisations that can demonstrate their environmental waste management practices and efforts can enter.
Speaking at the launch, CEO of Repak, Seamus Clancy said, "The Pakman Awards is now a more inclusive format and showcases not only the innovation and accomplishments of its members and other compliance schemes, but also Irish organisations, communities or individuals when it comes to excellence in recycling and waste management.
"The new inclusive format awards led to a record breaking number of entries in 2015, but with the help of our members and other organisations across the country we hope to supersede that number and make this year’s Pakman awards the most competitive to date."
The awards, sponsored by The Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government and ERP, will be given out at a ceremony on 27 October in Dublin’s InterContinental Hotel.
