OLTCO LAUNCHES A PIONEERING GROUND REINFORCEMENT SYSTEM MADE UTILISING WASTE OCEAN PLASTIC

We are so proud to announce that we have expanded our sustainable product offering by launching Recycle Base, a ground reinforcement system made utilising stone and low-grade plastic, including waste ocean plastic.

We have found that the average surface installation is 70m² and by using Recycle Base, this would utilise the equivalent of a tonne of waste ocean plastic, which is the equivalent of recycling 175 million plastic straws. In most cases, this waste plastic would have been incinerated, producing over a tonne of carbon dioxide. So, by utilising this product, our customers will be carbon offsetting and planting the equivalent of six trees.

We couldn’t be prouder to be able to offer this to our customers and Recycle Base will be available across our 38 franchised areas.

Tom Stringer, comments: “Recycle Bound has been hugely successful and has had a really positive impact on the environment and we’re really excited to replicate this success with Recycle Base. Recycle Base works perfectly with both our traditional resin bound and Recycle Bound solutions and I’m really proud that we can now also offer our customers a sustainable base solution.”

Johnny Pearce, says: “Typically, the low-grade ocean plastic is incinerated as it is no longer of use. We wanted to use this plastic and give it a new purpose and by doing this, prevent the release of more CO2 emissions. Recycle Base also has the added benefit that after its useful life, it can be broken up and used to create a new ground reinforcement system - it was really important to us that we created a product that could continue to be reused.”

It is really important to us that our products contribute to a circular economy and Recycle Base can be recycled at the end of its useful life. The top resin bound or Recycle Bound surface can be mechanically broken up and lifted away from the grid. The grid system can then be separated and the infill removed. The top surface and the infill can be crushed and reused into a new Recycle Base ground reinforcement system.
