Australian Made Recycled-Plastic Products

Replas is proud that all waste materials are collected within Australia, using post-consumer and post-industrial plastic. Up to 10% of our mix includes problematic post-consumer soft plastic packaging from supermarkets. For recycling to work it is essential that the people who produce plastic waste take responsibility for the life cycle of the material. This is why we choose to partner with companies that understand and embrace the Pull Through Effect. When you choose a recycled-plastic product you contribute to the continuing work of our Research & Development centre. Which then is dedicated to ensuring manufacturing methods are as sustainable and efficient as possible. Understand The Pull Through Effect and the War on Waste currently taking place in Australia.

Recycle Your Plastic With Replas

Replas Environmental Statement

With plastic use on the rise, we need to create a sustainable community that reduces, re-uses and recycles plastics. At Replas, we see waste as a valuable resource, and are part of making this world more sustainable. What is the environmental cost in not being involved in the circular economy? By re-thinking your selection and procurement to recycled plastic products, you become the true recycler. Everyone touches plastic and we must be more accountable and responsible if we are to drive demand for recycled plastic products.

The Circular Economy

Replas uses plastic waste collected in Australia to make a range of outdoor products. If there is no demand for these products, the plastic waste may end up in landfill instead. When government, schools, and industry purchase these products they are all helping to make the process work by closing the loop on recycling. This is called the Circular Economy, it ensures that the recycled plastic is being bought back into viable, useful products that will better the environment.

The Types of Plastic We Recycle

Replas recycles a wide range of rigid and soft plastics collected through industry and the community. This chart shows the types of plastic we can accept. The illustrations are a guide only and by no means a comprehensive representation of the plastic we recycle.

We can help you calculate just how much plastic you’re saving from landfill by purchasing a Replas product. Simply put in the weight of the specified product to see how many pieces of plastic packaging goes into the product.

Energy Efficiency

Eco-Buy Reports

The Replas process is very efficient – we use about 25% of the power that it takes to make virgin plastic. Replas does not wash the plastic making it so there is no water used. Replas only adds colour and UV stabiliser to their products at an add rate of roughly 2%.

The only waste created are any contaminates like aluminum cans or bottles which are of course recycled. The other bonus is that Replas products replace a lot of things that use valuable resources like timber etc. These products at end of life, or when damaged, can be recycled back into new recycled plastic products.

Eco-buy was a government based organisation that compiled reports that are of extraordinary value to Replas. These reports came from a 500,000 Victorian grant aiming to show why governments and corporations should purchase recycled plastic.

Here, you will find fact sheets that explain the benefits of using recycled plastic products in full detail. As well as saving money through these products, making sure it is fit-for-purpose, and much more.

Environmentally Friendly

Replas’ plastic recycling leads to low maintenance products that are designed to last. Recycled plastic is resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture, and will never split, rot, crack or need painting. Replas is proud to work with many leading Australian companies who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. Using Australian post-consumer and post-industrial waste, Replas is able to recycle this plastic and turn it into products designed for outdoor use within the community.
