Packaging Waste Compliance (Ireland)

The European Union (Packaging) Regulations 2014 in Ireland promote the recovery of specified packaging waste, imposing obligations and declaration responsibilities on all major producers who have an annual turnover greater than €1m (ex VAT) and place 10 tonnes or more of Packaging or Packaged products on the Irish market.

If you are a manufacturer, importer, distributor, wholesaler or retailer that exceeds the above thresholds, you are required to either:

  • join the Repak Compliance Scheme or

  • become a "Self-Complier" by registering with a Local Authority within your administrative area.

Greenstreets offers a range of services and assistance for obligated companies depending on their circumstances and provides trustworthy and impartial advice to help producers with all of their Packaging compliance needs.
