The Pakman Awards offer not only businesses and organisations but community groups and individuals the opportunity to showcase their best practices and innovation in recycling and waste management. We would like to encourage all organisations, businesses, community groups and individuals in Cork to enter this year’s awards and inspire others to follow their lead in doing all they can to protect the environment. The efforts of all those previously recognised at the Pakman Awards as well as this year’s entrants are critical to ensuring Ireland continues its journey to becoming a more sustainable nation.’’
