Recycled plastic furniture for schools, playgrounds etc…
Welcome to the Go Green range of quality recycled plastic products from Tamstar Ltd. As a non biodegradable compound it is almost impossible to dispose of plastic.
Our aim is to increase recycling of plastic waste and in turn provide additional commitment in confronting environmental issues in particular reducing our carbon footprint.
The award winning range of profiles used on our products have been made in UK from 100% recycled UK mixed waste and are designed to complement both rural and urban settings.
Benefits of using recycled plastic:-
- Lasts approximately five times longer than wood
- Reduced lifetime costs
- Heavy duty long term value
- Highly durable, will not rot or crack
- Good chemical and mechanical performance
- Low maintenance – no paint or varnish require
- Can be cut, drilled, nailed, screwed, bolted and stapled
- Easy to clean
- Vandal, insect and animal resistance

- Fully recyclable
As part of our overall continued commitment we know the importance of looking forward to a brighter future and feel we also have a shared responsibility
in caring for the environment in which we live.
From start to finish the Go Green Recycled range of products have been developed through extensive research and unique waste processing technologies.
UK mixed plastic waste that would otherwise be destined for landfill is converted into
sustainable environmentally friendly products which are 100 % recycled and more importantly 100% recyclable.
As an added commitment the electricity used for manufacture of the products is sourced from renewable sources certified by Scottish and Southern Energy.
With years of experience we have formed partners with a variety of large and small organisations throughout the UK which mainly include local government, education, health and industrial sectors.
In order to encourage further use of recycled plastics we are always seeking opportunities to diverse on our existing products and develop new innovative solutions.
Choosing our highly reputable quality products will avoid the common problems associated with using traditional materials and help you on your way to a cleaner future.
There has been an increase by UK Local Authorities to collect plastic packaging materials for recycling which include plastic bottles, tubs, trays and films.
Recycled plastics are used to create a variety of new items, such as bags, car components, picnic tables, benches, seats, furniture, building materials, paint pots, clothing (fleeces), fence boards and even kerbstones.
Fact: Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve enough energy to light a 60W light bulb for up to 6 hours!
45% of plastic packaging was recycled in 2016 which is an increase of 15% from 2015. Recycling targets are set on the basis of tonnes, and plastic is a very light material. Some councils prefer to collect heavier waste than plastic packaging.
However, the amount of councils offering the collection of various recyclables has been increasing steadily.
From 2010 to 2015 plastic bottle collection has increased from 90% to 99% Pots, tubs and trays from 28% to 75%
Products that can’t be recycled today, may be able to be recycled in the future. In addition, if it is not economically sustainable to recycle something then it is always possible to recover the energy content through energy recovery. This is particularly true for plastics, as the calorific value of plastics packaging is significantly higher than coal.
