“Replas was referred to us by a member of our Resource Recovery team. They had seen the War on Waste documentary and knew we were looking at an outdoor furniture company to create some specialty seats,” said Christina Halligan, Children’s Programs Coordinator at Cumberland Council in New South Wales. “We had wanted seats that were sustainably built and Replas fit all of our criteria for sustainability. The seats are very sturdy and will be hard to graffiti or destroy, which was a concern of our maintenance team,” continued Christina. Their new installation of a Replas recycled plastic Beachcomber is durable and low maintenance, a great aspect to have for any maintenance team like in Cumberland Council. “The facilities team installing the seats were impressed with the ease at which they were put together and then fastened to the ground. The community has had a favourable response to the seats with the Poppy the Possum motif as well as the materials used to make the seat,” said Christina. For the community to see their soft plastic going into a recycled plastic seat now installed in their council was a huge benefit for Cumberland Council. Active with a Waste Recovery Team, Cumberland Council is working on community and organisational education around waste reduction and sustainability. “All of the Replas team have been extremely pleasant and accommodating and worked so hard to get the seats to us on time for our launch. We would like to thank all of the Replas team for their hard work and for creating a great product,” concluded Christina. The Poppy the Possum custom Beachcomber seat from recycled plastic Replas products is a fantastic addition to Cumberland Council.
