Unique Timber Plastics (Pty) Ltd collects plastic waste and uses it to build beautiful, colourful, products that range from jungle gyms to deck loungers. The plastic is moulded into plastic timber planks and then put together to make a variety of different products that are waterproof, maintenance free, rot and insect resistant. Our "GREEN" products are environmentally-friendly and our plastic won't contaminate the soil or groundwater. Help save our trees by recycling recyclable products!
Place all your recyclable materials in a clear bag. Clean and dry materials, flattened cardboard and plastic bottles.
Place non-recyclable material in the municipal black bag.
