Turning plastic bottles into bollards

Plastic bottles previously used for milk, shampoo and similar consumer items are being turned into traffic bollards by LINPAC Environmental.

The ECO bollard is manufactured using a combination of 50% chipped bottles and 50% regular polymer. It is available as part of LINPACs two bollard ranges Heritage and Sentinel in a Mottle Slate Grey colour.

LINPAC Environmental general manager Simon Knights said: The development of the ECO Bollard allows us to take a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact in our manufacturing process.

He added: Using recycled plastics such as chipped bottles is particularly environmentally friendly as it allows us to efficiently re-use a waste material whilst keeping the processing to an absolute minimum.
