Public Resource Exchange Platform (PREP) is a free online reuse service for public services, allowing its users to pass on unused or unwanted items for free within the public sector. PREP delivers real financial savings to all its users, as well as being good for the environment.

Here are some of the direct benefits of reusing through PREP:

  • Reduce your waste disposal costs by avoiding skip and bulky waste charges
  • Encourage resource efficiency by extending the lifespan and value of items
  • Help protect your environment through the reuse of items and avoid throwing useful items in the bin
  • Encourage a change in behaviour when it comes to the management of our resources in Ireland and contributes to a more sustainable lifestyle for people in Ireland.
  • Contributes to the waste prevention and resource efficiency of your organisation

PREP is funded under the EPA National Waste Prevention Programme.
