“Plastic Recycling’s memorial benches have been a great fit in our city. Our public works superintendent is very impressed with the quality of the material and ease of assembly. The permanent placement benches have worked out great, and the movable benches have offered valuable flexibility for our park’s use and maintenance needs. Most importantly, the benches have created a wonderful sense of ownership and stewardship of our open spaces. The historical connections and opportunity to honor our community’s members in this way has really strengthened the ties between city government and the citizens it serves.”
– Mike Milano, Parks Committee Chairman, Palouse, WA
“Changing our returnable packaging to recycled plastic from wood has proven to be a benefit to both the environment and Marshall Engines. This new design pays for itself within 5 round trips and lasts well beyond. Wood skids would have had to be replaced at two to three round trips.”

The 821-lb. bronze bell that chimes from the top of the clock tower rests on recycled plastic beams manufactured by Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls.
“I must report on the effectiveness of this recycled lumber, both as a leveling material and as a vibration-dampining media. The lumber varies in thickness from 3/4″ to 3-1/2″ to give the bell a flat footing on the domed roof.”

“We are very pleased with the four hex tables that we recently purchased for our Norwalk Aquatic Center! Two of the tables were funded by a $2,000 grant award from the Warren County Philanthropic Partnership. Basically it comes down to this: the tables were easy to assemble, are aesthetically pleasing, and are durable and strong enough to last for years to come. The new tables replaced metal tables that had begun to rust and were not safe to have patrons of our aquatic center using.
– Jeff Lucas, Recreation Supervisor, City of Norwalk Parks and Recreation
“Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission has over 2,000 of your recycled plastic picnic tables in use at several of our Western Washington state parks. We have been very happy with their performance in our state parks. Your company was able to deliver the quantities specified under a very tight time schedule.”
– Robert Kirkwood, Operations Division, Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission

“Vandals destroyed two concrete picnic tables in the park by overturning and shattering them. When they came to the Plastic Recycling table, they apparently couldn’t break it – so they rolled it into the river. The recycled plastic table was retrieved from the river and placed back on its pad – none the worse for its ordeal. The concrete tables, however, were a total loss.”
