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 in 1992 —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 Australia which combined the unique expertise, products and manufacturing capabilities of both companies.
