Wicklow People - - NEWS -

TINAHELY Re­cy­cling Cen­tre was a fi­nal­ist at the re­cent Pak­man Awards 2017 in the Com­mu­nity Re­cy­cling Project of the Year cat­e­gory.

The awards cer­e­mony, which took place at the In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Dublin Ho­tel, saw 400 rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lead­ing busi­nesses, or­gan­i­sa­tions and com­mu­nity groups come to­gether to recog­nise ex­cel­lence in re­cy­cling, en­ergy and waste man­age­ment.

Lead­ing the con­grat­u­la­tions was Min­is­ter for Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Cli­mate Ac­tion and En­vi­ron­ment Mr De­nis Naugh­ten who said ‘ am de­lighted to be here tonight to ac­knowl­edge the ex­cel­lence in en­vi­ron­men­tal and sus­tain­abil­ity ef­forts from such a va­ri­ety of com­pa­nies and in­dus­tries.’

The Pak­man Awards is an ex­cel­lent ini­tia­tive and see­ing the de­vel­op­ment and suc­cess of the event year on year brings great hope and op­ti­mism for the fu­ture of re­cy­cling in Ire­land. I strongly com­mend Repak for con­tin­u­ing to recog­nise and re­ward this suc­cess’.

Tinahely Com­mu­nity Area Projects (TCP) wish to thank every­one that makes our re­cy­cling cen­tre work so well -Wick­low County Coun­cil who have sup­ported the ini­tia­tive from the be­gin­ning over five years ago; Des and Ea­mon Fitzger­ald for their gen­eros­ity in pro­vid­ing a site for the op­er­a­tion; TCP com­mit­tee mem­bers; the amaz­ing staff at the cen­tre and last but not least, the com­mu­nity as a whole who con­tinue to use the cen­tre, and who make the ef­fort to bring only good qual­ity re­cy­clable ma­te­rial.
