Success at The Pakman Awards 2019

November 5th, 2019

Castletroy College took home the Battery Champion & Educational Awareness Awards!

We enjoyed great success at The Pakman Awards 2019. These awards are a fantastic forum to recognise the recycling excellence efforts of our members and industry stakeholders.

ERP Ireland collaborated with Castletroy College on an educational project, E-Mining@School. E-Mining@School is a teacher-led initiative that develops high quality educational materials to raise awareness and engage secondary school students on the importance of recycling e-waste. The project culminated in a WEEE and battery collection event, the first ever to be held on the school grounds. Yvonne Holmes, Head of Communications at ERP Ireland, delivered a presentation to the students on how to organise a marketing campaign on how to promote collection events, and Charlotte Budd, Regional Account Manager at ERP provided insight into WEEE recycling in Ireland.

Martin Tobin, CEO Of ERP Ireland said, "I would like to congratulate Castletroy College who took home the Battery Champion & Educational Awareness Awards. I would also like to congratulate Joe Bonner, nominated for the WEEE Recycling Champion and Tim O'Dea of Barretstown, nominated for the Battery Recycling Champion for the Batteries for Barretstown campaign. These campaigns are worthy of such recognition and we in ERP are delighted to support them!"
