About Pakman

The Pakman Awards are the premier national environmental awards that recognise excellence in recycling and waste management among businesses, organisations, community groups and individuals in Ireland.

Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19, on businesses in Ireland, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Awards. The only category which will remain open for entries is the Plastic Pledge Award Category.

Entry to the Pakman Awards is free, and entry to the 2021 Awards will open for entry in early 2021. Tickets for the gala awards evening will be available from September 2021 and for further information, please email [email protected] 

The Pakman Awards were launched in 2015 by Repak to replace the Repak Recycling Awards. The inaugural Pakman Awards marked a significant change in direction for Repak whose awards were previously only open to its members and recovery operators. Now all organisations who demonstrate their sustainability and environmental efforts may enter.

The awards are free to enter and, on behalf of our sponsors, we welcome entries from both small and large organisations, businesses, community groups and individuals all over Ireland.
