All bound for Albany

The Replas WA trailer recently visited the City of Albany. The Shire have recently installed a Post and Rail fence and also some bollards all made from recycled plastic. They are reportedly rapt with both installations and are planning on designing their very own Beachcomber Seat as well as installing picnic settings throughout the shire.

  

Recycled plastic makes Tynwald wheelchair friendly

Recently, the Derwent Valley Council in Tasmania undertook some improvements at Tynwald Park, a large recreation park which has BBQ, sporting & play areas within its boundaries. As part of the upgrade, council wished to improve wheelchair access. The existing old treated pine post and log combination protruded, hindering entry. The solution was to use Replas 100 mm bollards which now allow for easy access of wheelchairs and prams, while also providing a necessary barrier to larger vehicles.

The new entrance sign to the park is also made from recycled plastic providing a striking first impression that will far outlast timber alternatives. Craig Fuller, Maintenance Supervisor at DVC, is extremely happy with the end result and has received many positive comments from locals and tourists.

  

Fit for a King

On King Island in Tasmania, these Kookaburra Settings have been installed since 2009. The picnic settings provide the perfect place to relax in this playground and the council are happy that they need virtually no maintenance.

    

New bollards for a new look

Replas 125 mm recycled-plastic bollards were used in a street scape garden at the Queensland Government building car park in Maroochydore. The black bollards create definition for the area, while the contrast against the green native plants lends an elegant and contemporary feel to the landscape.

    

A big bench for a big view

Shoalhaven Shire Council, in NSW, has purchased numerous recycled-plastic signs to direct people along various walking tracks and paths. But when it came to the stunning view at Bannisters Head in Mollymook they knew it all had to come to a stop. A stunning view like this called for a pretty spectacular seat to stop and enjoy the scenery.

A Big Bench from Replas fit the bill beautifully. This virtually maintenance-free structure offers a viewing platform, a place to throw out a picnic, or simply an opportunity to stop and appreciate a product that has saved waste plastic from going to landfill.

Down at the farm

The Brisbane City Council have installed Replas 100 mm bollards along the perimeter of the beautiful New Farm Park in the inner city of Brisbane. The recycled-plastic bollards replaced old rotten timber bollards which is an on-going project within the park. The bollards have been in place many years and still look as good as new.

Logan City Council works in tandem with Replas

Logan City Council have used Replas Bollard Signs throughout their 3.8 km East West bicycle routes. This is the first stage in a number of upgrades happening throughout the Logan area; stage two is due to commence over the next six months. The bollard sign has been in place for about two years and shows no signs of deterioration.

A Remarkable setting

The District Council of Mount Remarkable in South Australia has given Melrose Memorial Park a makeover with the addition of a range of new Replas seats and settings to replace the previous old tired furniture.

        

Neil Mitchell visits the Replas Resource Centre

Neil Mitchell visited the Replas Environmental Centre (REC) along with a group of interested residents from Maroondah Council. Neil describes himself as being on a ‘sustainable journey’ and says he first noticed Replas products when visiting the Sustainable Living Festival in Melbourne.

Part of a community group who committed to reducing their waste by 50 %, Neil and the others implemented simple measures such as taking soft plastics to Coles stores for recycling. Ultimately they reduced their waste by a whopping 81%, proving the power of community action.

Neil said as soon as he heard about the tour to the REC he was keen to come so that he could see the products made as result of his and others recycling efforts. Neil says he was very impressed with what he saw, adding that it, ‘doesn’t make sense to do otherwise’.

Nambucca makes tracks

The Nambucca Shire Council in NSW, is working on a project to stabilise beach access ways which are eroding from foot traffic and wind & wave action.

Generation Green Environmental Services was contracted by the Council to install Replas Enduroplank as part of this project. Due to erosion, an underlay was used to stabilise the sand prior to installing the Enduroplank on top.

'These products worked very well together and were easy to install, our crew was able to finish one of the tracks in a single day.' Steve Dibben, Generation Green Environmental Services.
