Summer Is Here - Install New, Maintenance Free School Playground Equipment

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Summer is the perfect time for schools to take advantage of empty playgrounds. If your school or municipal playground is in need of new playground equipment, take a look at our recycled lumber playground equipment and park furnishings by Play Mart. Across the nation, many of the pressure treated wood playgrounds are coming down to be replaced, with safer, more durable and reliable material.

Why are Play Mart playgrounds the perfect solution for schools and city parks? Because they are made from recycled lumber.  This playground equipment is made from recycled plastic milk jugs and it is entirely maintenance free. Play Mart recycled plastic playground equipment never requires sealing or painting and will not rot, crack or splinter.  The Fibrex Group has wide selection of recycled plastic lumber playground equipment and park benches.

With the focus in the classroom on reducing, reusing and recycling and decreasing our carbon footprints, this playground equipment, manufactured with 100% recycled plastic milk jugs can aid in discussion points as a part of the children’s lesson plans. Play Mart Playgrounds will also enhance your school and develop healthier and more active children. Contact the Fibrex Group to find out more about recycled lumber playground equipment and park benches.

Fibrex Group Sponsors Raleigh Fifth Annual Environmental Awards

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 05, 2012

The City of Raleigh has worked diligently to develop unique and timely solutions to the solid waste issues facing all local governments. Raleigh Recycling has served as a cutting-edge example to other municipalities across the state and throughout the county.

The City of Raleigh makes it easy for residents living in apartments, condominiums and townhouses to participate in the Raleigh Recycling program. The program provides collection centers in convenient locations in apartment communities.  The Fibrex Profile 6 Compartment Recycling Containers have been an integral part of increasing the recycling rate in Raleigh.

The City of Raleigh established the Environmental Awards to recognize the outstanding work in environmental stewardship. The program recognizes individuals and organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to the environment in our community. The 2012 program marks the fifth annual event.

The award winners were honored at a celebration on April 24, 2012 at the Nature Research Center of the Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh.

There were twelve different Environmental Awards. The award winners were selected based upon quantifiable results that positively affect our environment and the Raleigh community.

The awards program is completely funded by community sponsors. The Fibrex Group was a sponsor of the event in April.  The City of Raleigh has been a long-standing customer of ours for 20 years.
