Recycled plastic can be substituted for wood on any of SiteScapes wood line products. Plastic lumber is generally manufactured from 25 percent to 100 percent by weight preconsumer and postconsumer plastics, or a blend of recycled plastic with other materials such as wood fiber, glass fiber, rice hulls, peanut shells, and rubber. By using materials that have been diverted from the waste stream (e.g. plastic, wood, rubber, etc.), recycled plastic lumber (RPL) conserves landfill space.
