Metal Packaging Europe
Metal Packaging Europe is a not-for-profit making association whose prime objective is to promote Europe’s rigid metal packaging industry and provide it with a unified voice. Metal Packaging Europe brings together manufacturers, suppliers, and national associations across Europe.
European Aluminium was founded in 1981 and represents the aluminium industry in Europe. It encompasses primary aluminium producers, downstream manufacturers, producers of recycled aluminium and national aluminium associations representing the manufacturers of rolled and extruded products across the European countries.
Repak is a not for profit company set up by Irish business and owned by it’s members. Repak charges fees to its members in accordance with the amount and the type of packaging they place on the Irish market. These fees are used to subsidise the collection and recovery of waste packaging through registered recovery operators across Ireland- so that the individual member companies are exempt from this requirement. Repak is approved under licence by the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to operate as a compliance scheme for packaging recovery. Since Repak was set up in 1997 packaging recycling in Ireland has grown from a very low base to the point where Irish is now one of the leading recycling countries in the EU.
