Shellharbour Council Welcomes New Dog Agility At Off Leash Park

Big congratulations to Shellharbour Council, in New Sales Wales, who have recently installed dog agility equipment. This is at the off leash park at Oak Flats Park. Here, you can also relax with a drink or meal at the Oak Flats Bowling & Recreation Club. And try an afternoon of some bare foot bowling. Although a great place to relax and enjoy the area, many residents have used this area to exercise their pets. Just like Shellharbour Council, councils all around Australia are installing Replas’ recycled plastic Dog Agility Tracks. As well-trained, exercised and stimulated dogs are less likely to be a nuisance to the community by wandering or barking. The track consists of your choice of obstacles including hurdles, jump through, weave poles, ramps and even dog-grooming tables, all constructed from super-strong recycled plastic.

Shellharbour Council Seeing Residents Using The Equipment

As is the case with all our recycled plastic products, the obstacles are virtually maintenance free. Also, they will not split, splinter or crack; they never need painting and will be around for dogs and their owners to enjoy for many years. Too, which is great news for local residents a part of this council. Mrs. Ceri Arnold and her kids, Reece and Jack, are local residents. They explained “ the equipment is a great addition to the park and its fantastic that Shellharbour Council is using products manufactured from waste plastic.” Mrs. Arnold uses the park on a daily basis. Also, Ceri said that she saw the ‘War On Waste’ Documentary, and now has some recycled plastic products in her area. Because of this, many councils are installing dog agility equipment due to a need for owners to exercise their pets and themselves.

TS Construction Installs Premier Setting for Bass Coast Shire

First, TS Constructions located in Wonthaggi, Victoria have come on board as a Replas Pro Installer! For this reason, they recently installed 2 premier settings down in Wonthaggi on behalf of Bass Coast Shire. TS Construction is the maintenance team for the council. Off the back of that job, Bass Coast have ordered more furniture through Replas. Next, as the installation processes continue with ease, TS Construction is everything Replas looks for in an installation partner.

TS Construction Story

Bass Coast Shire was looking for a long lasting solution for their seating. Since their timber seating was rotting being just meters from the water. From here on, TS Constructions, along with the council who contacted Replas, were able to provide a solution in furniture that was not impacted by the testing environment. Afterwards, an installation of two Premier Settings happened in late December. Furthermore, the council was over the moon with the installation. No doubt, they have now ordered a large amount of furniture which will be rolled out in parks/ public space through the municipality. Tony Dibianco, a member of the TS Construction, has stated, ” Replas is a more aesthetically comfortable product, [with] nil maintenance, [and the] council promotes the use of recycled products.”

Of course, Replas hopes for the future of Replas Pro installers that all installation can go as smooth and easy as the Premier Settings in Bass Coast Shire.

Finally, please visit TS Constructions website to learn more about them here!

Modified Bollards Installed and Introduced in Reid Canberra

Reid, a suburb of Canberra, is very close to both the Australian War Memorial and Mount Ainslie Nature Reserve. Reid, Canberra, has officially been added to the long list of communities with installed Replas bollards. With the help of installers, All Seasons Horticulture Services, these 125 mm x 125 mm green recycled plastic bollards are now a part of their street view. These bollards had a modification which was a routed collar at the top and a red reflective strip inserted. Modifications are a huge part of Replas bollard modifications which make them so special to each town, suburb, or city they are installed in.

Where is Reid going next in the Recycled Plastic world?

When the recycled plastic ‘bug’ hits city councils, it explodes! With this new instalment from All Seasons Horticulture Services, Reid will now see the different recycled plastic makes on the suburb. Old timber rots and takes time to maintain. These new Replas Bollards are going to save the council time and money! With a product like recycled Bollards, it takes little to no maintenance. It is long lasting for the community, and it puts the town recyclables not in a landfill. Instead, a beautiful barrier that they can enjoy for the years to come. With the help of Replas Pro All Seasons Horticulture Services for their installation in Reid, recycled plastic bollards are now just the start for this community. Replas is hoping they love the new addition and come back for much more!

Replas Today

For more than 20 years the plastic recycling company has produced a range of over 200 products and has grown to become Australia’s leading plastic product manufacturers. Thus, Replas has since developed world leading technologies at our plastic recycling centre to reprocess Australia’s waste into robust recycled plastic products for outdoor use. As a result, these products offer an ethical alternative to the unnecessary use of virgin materials and provide long-lasting advantages to customers.

Even more, Replas is committed to reducing the amount of plastic currently going to landfill. Because of this, we support the community’s household recycling efforts by taking plastic waste from curbside collections and utilizing it to create products which can then be enjoyed by the community within their schools, parks and towns. Also, we are proud to partner with many Australian companies; such as Coles, who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. Finally, Replas assists them in reducing their environmental impact by ensuring their plastic waste is recycled and reused within Australia.

The Future of Replas Recycled Plastic

Above all, recycling plastic not only reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, but it also eliminates the need to use precious natural resources. Thus, human ingenuity has produced plastic. Replas believes the same ingenuity will produce solutions to using and reusing these products in a sustainable way. In addition, by recycling a range of plastics, Replas strongly believes it is playing its part towards creating a better environment for the future.
