A Plus Service Centre are simply over the moon to have won the ‘Tyre Recycling Champion 2019’ which was awarded at this year’s Pak-Man awards. This is a national award and means that the local Bray company have been deemed the best business in Ireland for recycling tyres in 2019.
A Plus Service Centre was shortlisted against two much larger companies and the fact that we won demonstrates that any business, regardless of its size, can have good policies and a positive impact on the national stage.
The award wasn’t just for the centre’s responsible tyre recycling, but also for their attitude towards their overall waste management and their efforts to recycle as much as possible was a contributory factor.
Speaking about the award Darren Darker of A Plus Service Centre told the Wicklow Voice “In the 10+ years that A Plus Service Centre have been operating, we have never claimed any particular green credentials; we simply dealt with the various types of waste we produce in a proper and thoughtful manner.
We never saw doing the right thing as an additional burden; it just made good business sense
“We never saw doing the right thing as an additional burden; it just made good business sense to dispose of our waste properly. It was better for the environment, while being efficient and structured for our business.”
Darren continued “Operating a business is a team event and winning this award was no different, so I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our staff, both past and present, along with our various waste partners for their efforts and support.
“I hope that winning this amazing Pak-Man award will encourage other business in Wicklow and beyond, to review their own waste policies and make improvements where possible. We also strongly recommend everyone to use a garage or tyre outlet that is a member of Repak ELT because then you know that your old tyres are being handled responsibly.”
