Repak is an industry funded organisation whose aim is to facilitate and grow packaging recycling.  Based on the principle of producer responsibility, Repak was established to help businesses meet their legal obligations to fund the recovery and recycling of the packaging on the goods or services they supply, as set out in the Waste Management (Packaging) Regulations 2007.

Repak is a packaging compliance scheme which, since 1997, has helped its 2,000 member companies meet their legal obligation to fund the recovery and recycling of the packaging they have produced or supplied onto the Irish market.

If your company has a turnover of more than a million euro and places 10 tonnes or more of packaging onto the Irish market, you are legally obliged to comply with the Packaging Regulations.

This can be done by joining Repak and paying an annual fee.  The Repak fee structure and free member supports are designed to incentivise the use of minimal and more easily recycled materials. If you avail of our free Prevent and Save service, you may even reduce your annual fee.

Irish Hospitality businesses that fall within the packaging waste compliance may include – Hotels, Large bars, Fast Food restaurants, etc.  These businesses fall within our “Scheduled Membership” category with annual costs from only €400. can provide Hotels, Bars and Restaurants with a confidential assessment of their obligation sunder the packaging regulations – we will tell you if you need to become a member – all you need to do is supply us with 1 years waste disposal invoices and confirm that your annual turnover is in excess of €1 million.
