Fence Barricade Installed at Deep Water Park in SW Sydney

Deep Water Park is part of Bankstown Council, located in the South Western part of the Sydney CBD. This park is located on the beautiful Georges River in Milperra. This is a great spot for a walk, picnic, or any outdoor activity for visitors and locals. Many have BBQs and take their boats out on the river, it is renowned for being an amazing summer spot. Bankstown Council have installed a fence barricade along both sides of the road. This prevents cars from entering the grass area. The fence line is made up of 100mm x 100mm black bollards made from Replas recycled plastic. They have a 50mm hole drilled on the side to accept the steel rail to be made into fencing.

The best part? This project was completed in 2003 – 15 years later and the bollards still look great. A huge bonus for the council to know the fencing is keeping the grass and surrounding areas safe from cars and boats with these long lasting and durable bollards. Using recycled plastic bollards as fencing will give ease to councils all around Australia, a confident decision to keep area safe and in tact. Amazing installation from Replas, showing recycled plastic can last the time!

12 Year Old Bollards/New Track Marker Signs On Magnetic Island, QLD

Alma Bay Magnetic Island in Queensland is known for it’s small but beautiful 150 m beach. Facing east, with two prominent granite headlands running out for 300 m on either side of the beach. This spot now has 8 new recycled plastic Track Marker signs, assisting the public with signage for rest rooms, fishing regulations, and more. These blue bollards are a great way to show the circular economy effect of taking plastic out of the ocean and creating fit-for-purpose products, like Track Marker signs. Including older paddle signs that Replas had installed over 12 years ago, with no signs of wear and tear in this harsh salt, marine environment.

Also on Magnetic Island is the local RSL, installed many 125 mm recycled plastic bollards adjacent to the front lawn and neighbouring property. These bollards have also been in place for many years and have required little  to no maintenance during this time. Replas recycled plastic products are known for being durable and long-lasting, a perfect example at Alma Bay and around Magnetic Island in Queensland.

A Winning Deck Solution

New South Wales Sport and Recreation at Point Wolstoncroft have replaced a timber boat ramp with recycled plastic Enduroplank™. The ramp needed to be very durable and as maintenance free as possible due to the water environment. “These products are easy to work with and great to see plastic waste being used,” says Mitch Hawthon and Brendon Carmody from Craig Clark Building Services. ”We didn’t need a crane to lift in the items, composite beams and Enduroplank™ was easily carried. Terrific to work with such a durable product and knowing it will be here in many years,” Mitch and Brendon agreed.

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.
