Recycled-plastic has even made its mark on tiny Walcha, with a population of 3021. Located between Tamworth and Port Macquarie in New South Wales, Replas seats have been installed across the local parks and ovals. Walcha Shire Council is incredibly pleased with the results, noting in particular the seating’s low maintenance. The council won’t have to constantly repaint or worry about splinters now that they have replaced traditional timber with environmentally friendly recycled-plastic.
