The State Government of Tasmania
The State Government has been a major sponsor of KAB activities for many years and we are very appreciative of that support. The Government has been a keen advocate of recognising the contribution of Tasmanians to their communities, whether they be small towns or cities. The importance of local care to maintain sustainable environments is critical to the health and wellbeing of all.

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) is a sustainable packaging initiative which aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter. It is an agreement between government, industry and community groups to find and fund solutions to address packaging sustainability issues. Currently over 900 organisations are signatories to the APC.
Replas was formed in March 2001, when two of Australia€s leaders in recycled plastic products amalgamated. Since 1991, Australian Recycling Technologies utilised plastic materials predominately collected from households, whilst Repeat Plastics had its major expertise in post-industrial waste. Together they forged a company with unique expertise, products and manufacturing capabilities.
This new company developed world leading technologies to reprocesses Australia's waste into robust recycled-plastic products for outdoor and infrastructure industries. These products offer an alternative to the unnecessary use of virgin materials and provide long-lasting advantages to customers.
Replas now produces over 200 robust, high quality products. In creating these environmentally-friendly and sustainable products the company is not only reducing the amount of plastic going to landfill, but also helping to save natural resources.
Increased demand led the company to form a network of distributors throughout Australia. In 2010, as a result of the growth in product range and manufacturing The Replas Resource Centre Pty Ltd (RRC) was established. The RRC will ensure consistent quality of service and product delivery.
Recycled plastic is resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture, and will never split, rot, crack or need painting. With a range including outdoor furniture, bollards, signs and decking, Replas strongly believes it is helping to create a better environment for the future.
