Replas is Australia’s leading problematic post-consumer soft plastic manufacturer, aiming to provide a solution for plastic waste by delivering quality, cost-effective sustainable products. Replas’s latest innovation is Polyrok, a sustainable recycled plastic aggregate alternative to mineral aggregate in concrete for pathways, kerbs, and channels. Replas’s cutting-edge technology allows the company to use post-consumer soft plastics from packaging that has been recovered through the REDcycle program in Coles and Woolworths supermarkets.

Frankston City and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils have both installed Polyrok footpaths in their municipalities. Frankston Deputy Mayor Nathan Conroy said: “Based on the State Government’s mandate to use recyclable products, this groundbreaking initiative is a key part of our infrastructure going forward.”

Fit-for-purpose, strong and durable recyclable concrete from Replas is the new way for councils to be part of the circular economy. This latest innovation from Replas results in a superior product that has benefits over conventional concrete. Specific plastic-to-cement binding technology has been tested to meet Australian standards, efficiently and effectively replacing conventional mineral aggregate while diverting plastic from landfill. 

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Despi O’Connor was especially excited to see Polyrok installed in front of the Tootgarook Primary School. “How fantastic we have found a home for our soft plastics right here beneath my feet,” Cr O’Connor said. “And right across the road we have a great educational opportunity to share this with our kids – our future.”

The joint managing director of Replas, Mark Jacobsen, explained the importance of using a sustainable aggregate alternative: “We have taken one of the most problematic plastics and turned it into a highly valuable, fit-for-purpose resource.”

Frankston City and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils have both used Replas products in other projects, including speed humps at the recent $1.6 million upgrade of the Hastings Boat Ramp.

If you’d like to find out more about how Replas uses waste plastic in its various products, the Replas Environmental Centre is back open for bookings and aims to deliver an inspirational experience in the world of plastic recycling. A tour gives visitors a chance to learn about resources and innovation, and how we can all play a part in creating a sustainable future. Visit the Replas website at www.myrec.com.au to book a tour.
