Warringah Council recently purchased 95 blue recycled plastic bollards, to be placed neat Collaroy and Fisherman’s beaches in NSW. These brand new bollards, featuring important informational signage are an interesting contrast to the old treated pine fences (seen in the background).

The council also took advantage of their recycling efforts, including lettering on the bollards advising that each is made from about 200 recycled milk containers.

The finished product looks fantastic and will last many times longer than alternative signage, establishing Warringah Council’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

The new look Manly Cricket Oval was unveiled to the public last month, during a celebrity Twenty20 match. The ground has been completely overhauled, with the installation of four new light towers and a brand new Replas picket fence.

The 420 metre fence consists of 160 recycled plastic panels, supported by square bollards. These materials are ideal for this beachside application as they will not split, splinter or rot.

Not only is the Replas fencing a low maintenance option, it is also environmentally sustainable. The plastic used for this fence is equal to over 210,000 two-litre milk bottles, or nearly 430 cubic metres of landfill.

This project was made possible through the provision of grant funding to Manly Council from the New South Wales Department of Climate Change and the Environment. This new upgrade will ensure that the Manly Oval remains a popular venue for players and spectators alike.

‘We all know that Manly Oval is one of the best grounds in Sydney,’ said Mayor Jean Hay. ‘And now with the beautiful white picket fence surrounding it and these new lights shining from above, it simply looks spectacular.’

New Zealand’s Hutt City Council has replaced some of the seating in Govind Bhula Park, with Replas’ Kimberley seats. These sturdy seats are available in two lengths and three slat colours, including a blue that matches the existing seating and bollard colour scheme used on the Hutt River Trail.

The council’s Horticultural Manager, Judy Robb, is delighted that in going forward, there will be no need to replace rotting slats or repaint the seats to keep up the appearance of the amenity.

‘The council has a commitment to sustainability, and we’re walking the talk by making this purchase,’ commented Judy. ‘The seats look just great!’

When the timber decking at the lookout at Royal Park in Tasmania needed replacing, Launceston City Council wanted to find a more sustainable solution. The forward thinking Parks team decided recycled plastic was the answer.

The longevity of Enduroplank™ will ensure that the decking looks as stunning as the views of the beautiful Tamar River for many years to come.

Victoria’s Boroondara Council recently installed Replas’ recycled-plastic wheel stops in a busy Ashburton car park. The wheel stops comply with the Australian Standard, and their sturdy but lightweight construction ensures they are simple and safe to install.

Boroondara’s Coordinator of Road Related Asset Maintenance, William McGivern, is very pleased with the product and the council has placed another order.

'The ARMCO barrier protection treatment has been accepted as a standard treatment to address similar situations along shared pathways. Great job!’

The City of Boroondara recently commissioned Replas to design and install a protective barrier for cyclists to cover the sharp metal edges of the guardrails along the edge of a local shared path.

West Tamar Council in Tasmania is a huge supporter of recycled plastic products, purchasing various items from Replas, such as picnic settings and speed humps. These products are perfect for councils as they not only reduce waste and landfill, but they are also long-lasting and far more resistant to vandalism than their alternatives.
