On the grass bank above Pebbly Beach, NSW stands a Replas Premier Picnic Setting. Given the nature of the harsh costal environment in these parts, Mid-Coast Council went looking for a maintenance-free furniture solution. They decided to purchase Replas, choosing one of our most popular recycled plastic seating products, a table setting that will give beach visitors picnicking pleasure for many years to come.
The City of Joondalup, Western Australia has chosen our 100 mm bollards in brown for Tom Simpkins Park in Mullaloo, a northern coastal suburb of Perth. The new recycled plastic bollards have replaced failing wood/plastic composite bollards installed just two years earlier.
The Replas bollards will prove far superior in providing decades of security to the hundreds of children that play in the park daily basis, Not only that, their manufacture has diverted the equivalent of half a million plastic bags from landfill – some 7.5 cubic metres of plastic no longer in the waste stream but serving a positive purpose as a valuable community asset.
Wirilda Kindergarden in Frankston North, Victoria recently purchased a Kingfisher seat, and everyone loves it! As soon as the children learned their new seating was ready for use, excitement could be heard from all corners as they converged to embrace the recycled plastic product.
When the kindergarten went looking to source sustainable, comfortable furniture that would require the bare minimum maintenance, Replas was the obvious choice. Educating children of a young age about recycling is very important to Replas as well. So we are delighted to see the kindergarten kids learning about environmental care as they put the seat to good use. After all, these people will be the ones running the world in the years to come.
The recycled plastic Kingfisher seat is made up of roughly 20,000 plastic bags, which if not utilised productively would add to the millions of tonnes of waste that makes its way into landfill every year.
The Mornington Peninsula region’s first private hospital emergency department will open soon at Peninsula Private Hospital in Langwarrin, Victoria. The new facility will have 14 bays set up for patients needing general observation and resuscitation, plus a dedicated suite for patients admitted with an infectious condition
Like all hospitals, Peninsula Private generates large amounts of waste plastic packaging. Discarded sterile wrap collected for recycling was made into 12 tree guards and two bins from the Replas range. These recycled plastic products are for the new emergency department’s grounds, a classic case of closing the recycling loop.
While visiting Kemps Creek Bowling Club in western Sydney to discuss decking, Replas NSW product manager Bert Meyer took a close look at the recycled plastic wheel stops installed in the car park. They still look great and there’s no evidence of wear & tear after the elapse of time at this busy venue. The durability and colour-fastness of Replas wheel stops make them popular for car parks everywhere. They fully comply with Australian and NZ Standards.
Kemps Creek is situated within the Liverpool Council area, close to the designated site for Sydney’s second major airport.
Ever come across vehicles parked so poorly that you can’t use the neighbouring space? Drivers who struggle to park between the lines have a clearer target to aim for when colourful recycled plastic wheel stops are installed. In New Zealand, yellow Replas wheel stops are increasingly popular in busy parking lots, helping ensure cars and vans are made to stop on the spot.
Outside the Waipukurau Library in Central Hawkes Bay, yellow Replas wheel stops are a new addition to the car park. And a Lower Hutt building services company uses the same product to make things a little easier for busy builders arriving in a hurry.
When staff at Federation Council, NSW chose to install new park furniture at Lake Mulwala, they looked for products with a reputation for longevity and resistance to vandalism. They also wanted fixtures with uniformity of appearance that would serve to enhance the park’s ambience. They chose Replas products, installing a range of recycled on the lakeside space around the boat ramp at Mulwala, across the Murray River from Yarrawonga, Victoria.
During the summer months the park lands surrounding Lake Mulwala are heavily populated with holidaymakers and day visitors, who make full use of the recycled plastic products, which 12 months after installation still look as new.
The Australian wildlife at Wellington Zoo in New Zealand feel right at home with a new recycled plastic picket fence surrounding their enclosure. The zoo has a number of kangaroos, wallabies, emus, dingoes and Tasmanian devils, all watched over by Bruce the brolga. Perennial crowd favourites at the zoo, our mates are made to feel right at home in the Neighbours walk-through experience, safe and secure behind their Replas fence.
To the thousands who drive and walk past it every day, historic Symonds Street Cemetery in central Auckland, New Zealand is largely hidden from view. Auckland Council encourages people to stop and consider the cemetery’s place in the urban landscape, and has recently upgraded its tracks and signage.
Replas 100 mm black bollards now mark a series of tracks that take the visitor around the old cemetery and its green bush environment, just a short walk from downtown. Each walk within the cemetery has a theme describing an aspect of the cemetery’s place in Auckland history. The recycled plastic track markers are colour coded with tape fixed into the routed bollard collar, a different colour signposting each themed route.
Staff at the Replas Environmental Centre at Carrum Downs, Victoria were recently blessed with a visit by Liz Kasell from the Red Group and Kristy Green from Coles Supermarkets. The Red Group and Coles are special partners of Replas in the movement to recycle and reuse plastic packaging. Kristy was making her first visit to our facility. This was a great opportunity for representatives of our three companies to discuss our partnership in dealing with waste plastic, and the many ways we can collectively promote ‘close the loop’ recycling, including the successful Buddy Bench for Schools.
