    New Benchmark: Recycling Technology Unveiled at ACRA Event


    The proof is in the sitting. A new recycling technology, in the form of a park bench, was unveiled at the recent Australasian Cartridge Remanufacturers Association (ACRA) Expo 2004. It should silence critics who claim remanufacturers eventually pollute the environment.

    Corporate Recycling/Repeat Products, a combined effort of Australian and New Zealand inventors and entrepreneurs, recasts unusable cartridges, along with discarded plastic bottles and curbside plastic waste, into beams and planks for park benches, tables, signage, garden edging, outdoor trash bins and even pool tables! The recycled park benches at the ACRA event were on display throughout the trade show floor.

    The Corporate Recycling/Repeat Products program granulates and molds plastic bottles and cartridges that cannot be refilled into quality recycled plastic products. The benefits with recycled plastic are that the material is low maintenance and long lasting. Unlike wood, recycled plastic products will not split, rot or splinter. Another key benefit is that graffiti wipes off, as well as the product doesn’t need to be painted due to the color being built in.

    The recycled park bench will make its U.S. debut at the 2004 World Expo. Stewart Norton, a member of Corporate Recycling/Repeat Products, is also participating in the Pacific Rim Panel discussion at World Expo and will available to answer any questions about the group’s Resource Recovery Program.
