The Many Benefits of Recycled Street Furniture

ByIan Monaghan

Go to any city centre, and there is a good chance that some of the street furniture that you see is made from recycled plastic. Recycled street furniture is becoming increasingly popular and it has a number of benefits over other traditional types of material. This article looks at a few of the most important benefits.


Recycled plastic is a very durable material and this means that it can put up with extremes of weather and corrosive salty air when located near the sea. This means that it is a great option for recycled street furniture if you want to create benches and tables which will last many years. In many circumstances this allows the furniture to last up to four times longer than wood.

This also means that it is less likely to crack and splinter, which can be uncomfortable for the users of the furniture and can even cause safety issues.

More Economical

Because it lasts longer, recycled street furniture can be a more economical choice. Perhaps it may be more expensive to buy at first, but if it lasts many more years then you will not have to replace the furniture so soon and one bench can be used for many years before it needs replacing. This makes it a great option for anyone looking for a more economical alternative.


Recycled street furniture can be designed to look just like wood. People often prefer timber benches because of how they look, but recycled plastic can look just like timber and still come with all the benefits of plastic. And, unlike stone which looks cold, and metal which rusts, it will be a more attractive feature in any public place.

Better for the Environment

The obvious benefit that recycled street furniture has over other types of materials is that by using recycled materials you are helping the environment in some way. Recycled furniture makes use of materials which would otherwise be wasted and sent to landfill, so you know that by choosing these you are doing your best for the environment at the same time as getting a superior product.


Recycled Street Furniture is the Best Solution

Recycled plastic is a great option for your street furniture. Strong, durable, long lasting, attractive and better for the environment, it has many advantage over other materials. If you want a more economical and environmentally friendly choice, it could well provide you with the solution you are after.
