Goplastic 100% recycled


Govaplast® is known as the premier brand of recycled plastic and has an Environmental Product Declaration.

The development of Govaplast® began in 1995 with a broad and sustainable vision for the future of street furniture with a cradle to cradle philosophy.

100% recycled raw material is used, ‘green’ power is employed in the manufacturing process, and cooling water is recycled. At the products end of life, it is again completely recyclable.

 A sophisticated production process and the use of high-grade raw materials enables the supply of high-quality products while reducing our ecological footprint.


Historically, recycled plastic has been seen at best as ‘functional’, fantastic in parks where the rot free, splinter free characteristics of the material means no maintenance and a 40 year life span (WRAP, 2006).

At worst it was seen to warp unless supported very closely with heavy duty profiles, rendering design basic.
