Recycled Plastic Lumber

Award Winning Recycled Plastic Lumber

Lumber That Lasts

When it comes to outdoor furniture and landscaping, high-quality structural materials are the key to long-lasting results. That’s why we developed a cost-effective timber alternative that provides superior performance and products that last indefinitely.

Plastecowood’s Smartawood™ does not rot, split or splinter and requires little to no maintenance. Not only that, it’s made from 100% recycled household plastic waste. So, by investing in our high-quality material, you’re also investing in Planet Earth.

Smartawood™ Vs Timber

To ensure the successful outcome of any furniture installation or landscaping project, lumber must be extremely durable, easy to work, weather resistant and splinter-free. However, that’s not always possible when relying on a natural material such as timber.

Smartawood™ is not only a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional construction materials, it’s often a higher quality product that provides superior performance.

In contrast to traditional lumber which may shrink and swell when exposed to water or moisture, Smartawood™ is water-resistant and jet-washable. Not only that, it’s also rot and fungi resistant and due to its high density, deters vandals from targeting the product.

When compared to timber and other materials, Smartawood™ offers a financial advantage as it requires no maintenance or preservatives during its lifetime. Therefore, the associated expense and disruption of replacing and treating materials throughout their lifespan is eliminated.

Smartawood™ is an extremely durable material that lasts indefinitely, demonstrating an unmatched cost-benefit ratio.

Sustainable Alternative

Our recycled plastic lumber is a great sustainable alternative to timber, but it can also be used to replace concrete, metals, and virgin plastics.

Considering that the concrete industry is one of the largest contributors to CO2 pollution, finding a suitable alternative is extremely important when it comes to protecting the environment and providing sustainable solutions.

Additionally, reducing the amount of virgin plastic produced year-on-year is also a key target of many governments as we move towards a more circular and sustainable economy. Plastecowood’s core mission is to be influential in helping society move towards a more sustainable future, that’s why we developed Smartawood™.

Smartawood™ is made using our pioneering recycling process that allows mixed plastic waste to be recycled without being sorted first. The benefit of this unique process is that all types of household plastic waste get recycled into our product as opposed to a select few.

For every tonne of mixed plastic material we receive, one tonne of Smartawood™ is manufactured. Our proprietary process ensures that no plastic goes to landfill or is incinerated.
