Sustainability and innovation in action

Bollards made from soft plastics.

Many of our parks, open spaces and stormwater management facilities use bollards to protect these spaces from vehicle access.

As these bollards are weather exposed, the traditional timber bollards required regular maintenance and replacement to address rotting, splintering and termite damage.

Council now uses Replas bollards as standard in our parks, open spaces and stormwater management facilities. These are made from 98% recycled plastic material, collected through the REDcycle program - a program collecting soft plastic waste from consumers.

The use of Replas bollards as standard in all weather-exposed areas has reduced maintenance requirements, replacement costs and associated waste to landfill - while also supporting the recycling of soft-plastic waste in Australia.
