Recycling has now become an intergral part of everyday life. Any materials or products that can no longer be re-used should be recycled where possible. Recycling can help save materials, create money and jobs, make use of waste materials and in many cases requires less energy input than production from scratch. Repak have been a lead sponsor of the Green-Schools programme for 3 years.
Repak Recycling School of the Year Award
The Award, organised by Repak, in association with An Taisce's Green-Schools programme is designed to reward a school that has gone to extra lengths to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. All schools that achieve Green-Flag status for Litter & Waste for the previous school year are entered in the competition.

Repak has set up a special schools and teachers resource section on the website www.recyclemore.ie. On this site you will find a number of different suggested lessons, class quizzes and activity plans!
