New Community Grant in Support of The Recycling Ambassador Programme


Repak has provided a fund of €42,500 for Community grants administered by VOICE

The grants will be up to a maximum of €500 per group and are being made available to community groups to support the Recycling Ambassador Programme nationwide

VOICE and Repak have developed this grant to support community groups to engage with their neighbours to clear up the confusion around recycling through local face-to-face discussions, and to help with research into
current recycling behaviour and barriers by conducting a paper survey in their community.

The Grant may be used for a specific sustainability focused project to take place between  May-July 2018. Groups must commit to sharing photographs and a report on their event and the recycling message on their social media. Preference will be given to projects with a waste reduction or recycling focus.  In addition, we are asking groups who receive the grant to commit to:

  • carrying out 50 recycling behaviour & barriers surveys
  • identifying local groups or events interested in receiving a free workshop from a Recycling Ambassador

Closing date for applications

5pm 13th April, 2018

More About Repak

Repak is a for-purpose packaging recycling scheme funded by contributions from more than 2,300 participating member’s companies. Since 1997, Irish businesses have invested over €400 million through Repak to support packaging recycling in Ireland.

Repak has always endeavoured to support any national scheme that encourages behavioural change in consumers when it comes to packaging recycling so we were delighted to get involved with the Recycling Ambassador Programme.

We would like to take this opportunity to extend
our thanks to our valued members whose contributions make our participation in schemes like RAP possible. We will continue to lend our support as this great initiative grows.
