Cr Samantha Dunn from the Yarra Ranges Council, in Victoria, recently visited the Replas Environmental Centre. She was interested in finding out a little more about Replas after a boardwalk made from recycled-plastic was installed in her local area. According to Cr Dunn, ‘Council thinks it is important to purchase sustainable products,’ adding that, ‘Replas wins hands down on sustainability not only because it’s made of recycled materials, but is easy to maintain too and it’s a locally based company’.

Cr Dunn said, ‘Knowing that we have used a recycled product rather than raw materials is very important and is far more beneficial in the longer term as it means that our footprint is lighter in terms of reusing and recycling, rather than needing to use raw materials’.
