Co. Wicklow business A Plus Service Centre has been named as the winner of the 2019 Tyre Champion Award, sponsored by Repak ELT, at the 2019 Pakman Awards. The Pakman Awards is a national environmental awards programme that recognises outstanding work in recycling, sustainability and waste management by businesses, organisations, individuals and community groups in Ireland. This year’s ceremony saw 400 representatives from leading community groups and businesses come together to recognise excellence in waste management, sustainability and recycling.
Bray based tyre company, A Plus Service Centre provides a range of motoring services to residents in the locality. The Pakman Awards judging panel singled out A Plus Service Centre for its work over the past twelve months supporting Repak ELT in the rollout of the scheme’s various initiatives that have promoted tyre safety and recycling as well as actively disposing of its waste correctly through an accredited waste collection operator.
A Pakman Award is one of the highest environmental accolades that a company, community group or individual can win for their waste management and recycling efforts in Ireland. All 14 category winners were automatically put forward for the overall Pakman Award on the night, which was won this year by the Aran Islands Co-op Recycling Project (Athchursail Árann).
Speaking on A Plus Service Centre’s win at the Pakman Awards, Séamus Clancy, CEO of Repak said:
“I would like to congratulate A Plus Tyre Service Centre on winning the Tyre Champion Award at the 2019 Pakman Awards. A Plus Service Centre has demonstrated time and time again to its customers how important it is to have healthy car tyres when driving on the road. Any tyres that have reached the end of their life span must be changed and disposed of correctly to ensure safe driving and a better environment.
With more vehicles on Ireland’s roads than ever before, it is perhaps more important than ever to ensure your tyres are safe to drive. Companies like A Tyre Service Centre play a crucial role in championing this and protecting Ireland’s environment for our future.’’
