The CR New Zealand agent TRC has started to make inroads into the NZ market with many recycled seats, bollards and jetty planks being distributed to various councils on both the North and South Island. The unique part of this great story is the fact that TRC granulate NZ’s plastic waste in Auckland and ship the plastic granules to Melbourne for moulding into the recycled products that they receive back. This Closed Loop approach means that the councils are buying back their own waste which can be displayed proudly to the public. The plaque on the picnic setting could now say:

“Made from 100% recycled plastic which contains plastic collected and granulated in New Zealand”.

Pictures and test cases to follow.
