Repak has today announced that the deadline for the 2021 Pakman Awards has been extended until Friday 3 September. Now in its 7th year, the national environmental awards are FREE to enter and honour individuals, businesses, community groups and organisations who have demonstrated excellence in waste management and recycling practices over the last two years.
Since the Pakman Awards began, organisations, businesses, community groups and individuals of all sizes have been recognised for demonstrating recycling excellence and innovation in sustainability and waste management. Previous winners of a Pakman Award include; Aldi, Aran Islands Co-op Recycling Project, Bujo, Clean Ireland Recycling, Tesco Ireland, Foodcloud and Foodcloud Hubs, Allied Irish Bank, Raidió Teilifís Éireann, Sligo County Council, Lidl, Recreate Ireland and Rehab Glassco.
CEO of Repak, Séamus Clancy commented: “We have decided to extend the deadline for Pakman Award entries to next Friday 3 September. Small organisations or an individual are just as likely to win a Pakman Award as large multinationals, as our previous winners demonstrate. I encourage anyone who is considering submitting an entry to do so before the deadline closes and avail of the opportunity to have their sustainability efforts recognised at a national level and win a national environmental award ’’.
