SUSTAINABLEOPTIONS.CO.UK - Sign Of The Times – Plastic Company Wows UK Local Authorites

Street signage across the UK could be set for a new lease of life thanks to Leeds plastics recycling specialist,

The company, which is based in Riverside Place, has identified a major gap in the British market, and begun producing heavy duty plastic signage.

There has already been massive interest from a number of local authorities and talks are now in progress with several.

Marketing manager at, Jo Dell, said: “The recycled plastic signs we have developed are perfect for use with Britain's inclement weather, and the rigours of modern society, because they are rot proof, rust proof, chemical proof and vandal proof, graffiti just wipes off them.

“If you look around, thousands of signs across the country are either rusting, bent, or just rotting. We realised there was a huge opportunity and got our research and development department to produce a range of pilot products.

“Interest at the various trade exhibitions we attended, was massive, particularly from public sector authorities, so we have now moved to full scale production and have great hopes for this product range.”

Sustainable Options' plastics are now used across the world in a variety of ways and have been made into railway sleepers, fencing for heavily waterlogged environments – the Environment Agency is one of their customers – and even funky furniture. The news signs are predicted to last 5 times longer than wood and are more durable than metal.

“They are also attracting interest from the private sector,” added Jo Dell. “A company which rents out cottages by the sea has bought a range of signs because they withstand the rigours of salty water brilliantly. The possibilities our infinite and to think that most of our source product would once have been destined for landfill. Plastic is now making a real difference to society.”
