After decades of being synonymous with Auckland’s wastewater treatment Puketutu Island in Auckland, New Zealand, is now a place people want to visit.

As part of the redevelopment of the area, Watercare Services Ltd chose recycled-plastic to create bench seating and used Enduroplank™ decking to bridge a spillway for the convenience of cyclists and walkers along the Manukau Coastal walkway.

By using recycled plastic on the project, Watercare has saved the equivalent of 658,000 plastic bags from ending up in landfill.
