Playground Recycling Content
Council is committed to reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill by encouraging re-use, repair and sharing.
As part of our commitment to recycling and buying recycled materials, Council has recently installed an innovative playground at W H Holmes Reserve.
The playground contains many recycled materials, including panels made from recycled plastic and rubber softfall made from used truck tyres. The materials used in the playground can also be recycled at the end of their useful life.
The rubber softfall underneath uses a lot of recycled product. This thick impact layer is 100 per cent recycled rubber predominantly made up of recycled truck tyres. The thinner top coloured layer is made up from 20 per cent black recycled tyre rubber also, with some non-recycled colour granules that will ensure the product keeps its vibrancy and looks good long-term.
