A grand result

Melbourne’s Manningham City Council recently refurbished the grandstand seating at the Timber Ridge Reserve in Doncaster, replacing old timber slats with 90 x 40mm recycled plastic for a low maintenance solution.

Well done to Zac Anver, Manningham’s Sports Development and Liason officer, for his wise selection of recycled plastic.

Looking to the future

The Mackay Regional Council in Queensland recently commissioned Replas to supply two new composite fibre and Enduroplank™ structures, in order to replace timber bridges that were severely damaged.

These structures were chosen for their ease of installation and long life expectancy – which is up to 75 years on the composite fibre bridge sub-structure.

Historic village gets a facelift

When it came to updating Wellington Street in Tasmania’s historic Richmond, the team at Clarence City Council decided to replace rapidly deteriorating timber products with more economic and environmentally‐friendly alternatives.

They chose Enduroplank™ to create a sturdy footbridge that will not crack, rot or splinter, and Replas bollards to promote a green approach to road safety.

Because recycled‐plastic products will last up to three times longer than timber, they are more cost effective in the long run. Furthermore, the slip resistance of the Enduroplanking™ allows pedestrians to walk along Wellington Street safely.

Exclusively yours...

When Whitehorse City Council’s Parks Planning Facilitator, Dion Scott, recently upgraded the park at Redland Drive Reserve, he chose to use only Replas recycled‐plastic products in the design.

‘We chose Kimberly seats, picnic settings, and chain‐linked bollards,’ he commented at the completion of the job, ‘and we’re really happy with the result’.

Warringah Council knows a good thing

Ranger Chris Buckley of New South Wales Warringah Council is a huge fan of Replas signage.

The council has now ordered more than 120 maintenance free signs in different styles, including the Trackmarker and Bollard signs shown here at Manly Dam.

Protect your investment

The City of Casey’s Aquatic and Recreation Centre in Victoria has upgraded their car park to accommodate more visitors. The new design includes garden beds planted with native fauna to enhance the look and feel of the building.

To protect these beds, the council commissioned six swale bridges constructed from Enduroplank™ decking and capping, to allow pedestrians easy access to the centre.

Green purchasing the way of the future

Congratulations  to Victoria’s Casey City Council for picking up the trophy for ‘Excellence in Green Purchasing’ at the 2009 ECO-Buy Awards.

Held at the National Gallery of Victoria on May 20, the ceremony aimed to acknowledge local governments and businesses for their green purchasing programs. The City of Casey has been leading by example for nearly a decade, purchasing more than 10,000 bollards, as well as signage, furniture and Enduroplank™ decking.

The council’s commitment to saving the environment by choosing non-timber alternatives is an inspiration, and the award is well deserved.

No business like snow business

Replas’ new 100mm bollards have recently been installed at Victoria’s Dinner Plain Alpine Resort.

According to Alpine Shire Council’s Tendering and Contracts Coordinator, Dianne Mahlstedt, the recycled-plastic bollards blend in well with the environment and will serve their purpose nicely. 'The bollards easily identify what we need to protect without looking out of place.’

The new 100mm bollard has been a great hit since its release last month, with over 6,000 units being purchased.

 

Council not sitting on fence when it comes to beaches

Randwick City Council is one of many New South Wales councils that are embracing Replas’ products. Shown here are our 145mm recycled-plastic bollards used at Yarra Bay in La Perouse, as both fencing and a beach walkway.

The council has also used recycled-plastic bollards in many other beachside applications, including Coogee Bay.

No more maintenance blues

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!’
