About Us

Willie van Niekerk (Owner)



I grew up close to a nature reserve and developed a deep love for nature from a young age.  I have always been curious about how things are made and pursued engineering as a career.  With the creation of Ecoplas Australia, I get to combine these two interests for the betterment of the environment in the region by creating a circular economy.


The Process:

We purchase shredded and washed milk bottles from recyclers in South Australia and Victoria, and granulate them for use in our extruders. We also receive plastic bottle lids from all over South Australia and Victoria and crush them into small flakes. These are then blended with a master-batch containing colour and UV-stabilisers, before extruding the final product: durable plastic fence droppers.

At Ecoplas, we know what exceptional customer service means. We offer quality products manufactured from 100% locally recycled plastic (HDPE). Contact us today and help us achieve a cleaner, greener, environment.
