Launched in 1958, TidyTowns has rapidly developed to become Ireland’s most well known and popular local environmental initiative. TidyTowns encourages communities to improve their local environment and make their area a better place to live, work and visit. While TidyTowns is a competition, the emphasis has always been on participating rather than winning as the very act of participating benefits the community. The success of TidyTowns has grown over the last 50 years; with a record 720 entrants received in 2009.

Repak has been a sponsor of TidyTowns since 2003 and are delighted to continue this sponsorship into 2014.

Repak sponsors two awards in the annual TidyTowns event; the ‘Regional Award’ and the ‘Best Presented Bring Bank Award’.


Winner of the Repak sponsored 'Best Presented Bring Bank Award' in 2013,
Ballycanew, Co. Wexford.

The ‘Best Presented Bring Bank Award’ attracts a prize of €1,000 for the winner in each region and takes account of presentation, placement and utilisation by the local community in its evaluation. €1,000 is also awarded to the best bring bank overall.

The ‘Regional Award’ is awarded to the top scoring entrant in each section, of which there are seven, and it attracts a prize of €2,000 to each winner.
