RECYCLING Company Replas has been recognised with a business of the year award at the Melbourne Business Awards Gala in Mordialloc.
Kelvin Agg territory manager accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“Replas has been around for 28 years. We manufacture recycled plastic products. We work with Red Cycle, which is a program that collects all the soft plastics through Woolworths and Coles’ collection bins. We use that soft plastic that would be destined for landfill or the ocean, we use it as a percentage of our cake mix for the products that we make,” Mr Agg said.
“We have over 200 products made from recycled plastics, extremely environmental. We often provide sustainable solutions for councils, who make up about 80 per cent of our audience. We take in, process, and dispatch from Victoria.
“I presented earlier at the year at a breakfast session, then we got shortlisted to be one of six finalists. At the breakfast awards we took out the 2018 trophy.”
Mr Agg said receiving this award was a big deal for the company.
“We were approached by Aspire CSIRO telling us we should be recognised, and I followed it from start to finish. This is huge for us,” he said.
The award was received by the Carrum Downs based company at a breakfast on Friday, 30 November. The Melbourne Business Awards is organised by Kingston Council.
