Waitomo Caves in New Zealand’s North Island has taken on the project of using Corporate Recycling Jetty planking for outfitting the new walkways throughout the caves. The Waitomo caves are a popular destination for thousands of tourists and locals alike. Each year the caves experience a lot of foot traffic and although the walkways are not quite yet completed the caves co-ordinator has received a lot of positive feedback. The walkways go deep underground in very damp surroundings. Due to the harsh environment of the caves the recycled plastic Jetty planking was the most economical choice for the caves due to its long life and sturdy structure. Make sure you take the chance to visit the caves when you are in New Zealand next for a great example of how Jetty Planking can make excellent walkways.
New Zealand now has many recycled products made from recycled plastic. These include seats, bollards, benches and paddle signage. These products are not only environmentally friendly but are rated as a more sustainable product due to their long life and maintenance free properties.
