Special show for plastic recycling

Plastic recycling

Products made from recycled plastics offer impressive quality. These materials have been used to make various products for gardening and landscaping for over 25 years. Despite this, many people still believe that they are only used for park benches. When you take a closer look, you find that the reality is completely different. Customers do not just use these products for environmental reasons, but because they are impressive in their own right. Anyone who has ever used and installed these versatile items will keep coming back to them. This event will showcase these products and what they are capable of. It is presented in the Atrium by bvse-Bundesverband Sekundärrohstoffe und Entsorgung e.V.
