Since 1991 Australian Recycling Technologies (ART) and Repeat Plastics have shared a passion for the environment. Dismayed by the amount of household plastic waste going needlessly to landfill, both companies were developing the technology to take this waste material and recycle it
Repeat Plastics specialised in the collection of post-industrial waste while ART concentrated on material collected from the kerbside, receiving The Banksia Award in1992 —the most prestigious award for environmental excellence in Australia.
It was a natural progression for these two companies to join forces. Their shared vision resulted in the formation of Replas which combined the unique expertise, products and manufacturing capabilities of both companies.
Now in its twenty-first year, the company produces a range of over 200 products and has grown to become Australia’s leading producer of recycled-plastic products.
Replas has since developed world leading technologies to reprocess Australia’s waste into robust recycled-plastic products for outdoor use. These products offer an ethical alternative to the unnecessary use of virgin materials and provide long-lasting advantages to customers.
Replas products are designed to last. Recycled plastic is resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture, and will never split, rot, crack or need painting.
We have the ability to mix a variety to raw materials to create a large range of colour options. Our continual development in design has produced a range of unique products including outdoor furniture, bollards, signage, and decking.
Replas is at the forefront of technology and now boasts a range of state-of-the-art machinery tended by the latest available robotic technology ensuring they operate with a high degree of energy efficiency
Our technology allows us to mix different plastic polymers together and create complex three dimensional shapes. This process is unique to Replas and allows for greater possibility with design.
The investment in research and development has enabled the company to be extremely competitive in the market place. As a result of the growth in product range and manufacturing capacity the company formed a network of distributors throughout Australia.
In 2010, Replas opened a new distribution centre—The Replas Resource Centre (RRC). The establishment of the RRC has enabled the company to ensure consistent quality of service and product delivery.
Replas is committed to reducing the amount of plastic currently going to landfill. We support the community’s household recycling efforts by taking plastic waste from kerbside collections and utilising it to create products which can then be enjoyed by the community within their schools, parks and towns.
We are also proud to partner with many Australian companies, such as Dulux and Coles, who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. Replas assists them in reducing their environmental impact by ensuring their plastic waste is recycled and reused within Australia.
Recycling plastic not only reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, but it also eliminates the need to use precious natural resources. Human ingenuity has produced plastic. Replas believes the same ingenuity will produce solutions to using and reusing these products in a sustainable way. By recycling a range of plastics, Replas strongly believes it is playing its part towards creating a better environment for the future.
