The recycled plastic that is used to create park furnishings is often made by high-density polyethylene or as it’s more commonly known as HDPE. It’s the most common and abundant type of recycled plastic and it can be handled at a local recycling level.
So not only does it divert plastic waste from going to landfill, it also helps the local council, economy and recycling firms by being able to channel the material into something that can benefit the community.
According to one firm who deal with this kind of recycling, it would take around 240 large milk bottles to create a recycled plastic armchair. It’s a whole lot of waste that can be reused and turned into something good.
