Recycled Plastic Livestock Post / Vineyard Post

Consumers are increasingly realizing the benefit of replacing traditional landscaping and architectural wood products with plastic-based ones.  Plastic-based products simply last longer, holding up to the elements better and retaining their ascetic look over a longer period of time.  We offer products that are made of nearly 100% post-consumer recycled plastics derived from HDPE milk jugs and other mixed rigid containers.  


 
Benefits:
No more staining or painting posts. Plastic fencing is a unique environmentally friendly product.

Unlike pressure treated wood, there are no hazardous chemicals to leach out.

Standard woodworking tools can be used to cut, staple or screw into the plastic fence.  
Insulators are not required for electric fence installation. 
Plastic posts are virtually solid and do not need timber or metal inserts.


Made in Pennsylvania from:
86% post consumer recycled polyethylene (HDPE)

2% color

12% post industrial recycled plastic
Total amount of recycled plastic is 98%.

Plastic fence is a popular alternative to wooden fence.  Although the up front cost of plastic fence causes potential users to pause before purchasing, further investigation convinces many of the long term value.  A major cost is the installation of the fence, and is identical for both plastic fence and wooden fence.  After a few years in service, wooden fence begins to rot, particularly at the ground level.  At this time the wooden fence begins to fall apart, and will need to be replaced.  This means that the fence owner has to not only purchase more wooden fence, but also pay again for the installation.  This does not occur with plastic fence.  Add to this feature the fact that plastic fence does not have to be painted, and the benefits of plastic fence outweigh the initial cost.  For these reasons plastic fence is referred to as “low maintenance” fence.

Another feature of plastic fence is its flexibility.

Instructions for Installing Recycled Plastic Fencing

  1. Layout the post hole locations eight (8) feet apart along your fence line.
  2. Dig the first two post holes.  Dig post holes 28 to 30 inches deep.
  3. Insert the first post in its hole.  Fill the hole with dirt and tamp down the soil after each six (6) inches of fill.  Make sure that the post is vertical and plumb, and that the post holes are aligned on the fence line.
  4. Set the second post in its hole making sure that it is eight (8) feet from the first post.  Fill the hole with dirt and tamp down the soil after each six (6) inches of fill.  Make sure that the post is vertical and plumb, and that the post holes are aligned on the fence line.

Pat has a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from Rutgers University.  His early work experience was with various chemical processing companies.  He then spent sixteen years with Mobil Chemical Company in the plastics division where he worked mainly on the extrusion of blown film.  In 1992 he left Mobil to start his own plastics processing company.  Pat is the managing member of Waste Not Technologies, LLC located in Saylorsburg PA.  The company manufactures post and rail fence from recycled HDPE; mostly post consumer milk jugs.  Pat has two patents for plastic products.  His association with Northampton Community College began in 1992 when he taught his first course in “Polymer Processing”.  Since that time he has also taught “Introduction to Plastics” and several levels of mathematics.  Pat is an active member of The Society of Plastics Engineers, and currently serves as president of the Lehigh Valley chapter.  He also serves on the advisory board for the Emerging Technology Application Center at Northampton Community College, and the Solid Waste Advisory Committee of Monroe County, PA.

Fence covered by US Patent No. D583,486S

and US Patent No. 9,079, 336 B2



 

According to the EPA website and their on-line calculator to determine the greenhouse gas benefit of our recycled plastic wood fence, the following results were determined:

As of January, 2009, we have recycled 123,454 pounds of plastic into fence. That results in a greenhouse gas benefit equal to 28 passenger cars not driven for one year.


Therefore, if you purchase 600 ft of three rail fence, or 850 ft of two rail fence, you will have contributed the greenhouse gas benefit equal to one passenger car not driven for one year.
