OLY-OLA EDGINGS ARE 100% RECYCLED . To be environmentally friendly and cost effective, all plastic edging manufacturers use some amount of reprocessed or recycled material to produce their edging. As in all recycled material, the more a material is used, ground up and reused, the compounds begin to weaken and break down; therefore, reprocessed material can range greatly in quality. Oly-Ola is different because they are very selective of the reprocessed material that goes into their edging products. In fact, the majority of the raw material comes from post-industrial plastics and is purchased from a consistent supplier. Oly-Ola knows what to expect and their expectations are high when it comes to choosing a material that will ultimately need to live up to our exceptional guarantee.
