OC Eco T-Top Bollard®
An environmentally sustainable product, creating positive social change.
In-line with the Victorian Government’s Recycled First Policy and Social Procurement Framework, OCC Enterprises has recognised the need for socially procured circular economy products designed for the construction industry.
The OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is our premier product. It is the first and only Australian-made recycled t-top bollard that is also creating meaningful employment for people with disability.
AN AUSTRALIAN FIRST
The OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is an Australian first – made from 100% recycled plastics right here in Australia by a Social Traders certified social enterprise. Benchmarked against leading imported bollards made from virgin plastics, the OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is incredibly durable, flexible and long lasting.
Made from a specially formulated proprietary blend of LDPE/HDPE to optimise strength, flexibility and durability, the OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is the ideal choice for Traffic Management Operators and Civil and Construction companies. The OC Eco T-Top Bollard® has undergone both NATA certified laboratory testing and in-field testing to ensure compliance with Australian Standards AS1742.3 and AS/NZS1906.1.
The OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is sold at a competitive price, comparable to currently available import virgin plastic bollards, coupled with its social and environmental benefits.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Currently all rail and road major infrastructure projects in Victoria spend significant budgets on traffic management products and services.
- Temporary bollards used in traffic management are a significant contributor to landfill due to their short life span and high turnover resulting from the damage they sustain.
- Almost all t-top bollards are currently manufactured offshore using virgin plastic materials and are not recycled.
FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE THE OC ECO T-TOP BOLLARD®
Australia’s first locally manufactured T-Top Bollard from a Social Traders certified Social Enterprise made from recycled bollards and locally sourced recycled plastics.
REDUCE PLASTICS GOING TO LANDFILL
The OC Eco T-Top Bollard® is made from recycled bollards and locally sourced recycled plastics. Coupled with our recycling service for old t-top bollards, the process diverts virgin plastics from landfill and reduces fossil fuels used in their production.

Eco Bollards made from recycled waste plastic have the potential to both create job opportunities whilst meeting a high demand product by major construction projects.
We are strong supporters of the social enterprise OCC Enterprise (OCCE) and their innovative responses the opportunities provided by the Victorian government’s Social Procurement framework. We are currently supporting their OC Eco Car Wash but also see great opportunity for the Eco T-Top Bollard and feel that not only can it create jobs for people who face barriers to employment but that it also delivers significant sustainability outcomes through the reuse of materials that currently go to landfill.
