Integrated Recycling 's plastic fencing has been used for a number of stock, horse and marine fencing contracts due to its impermeable make-up.

One of Integrated Recycling's latest plastic fencing projects was the supply of fencing material to Project Eden (Department of Environment and Conservation) for the Shark Bay World Heritage Area in northern Western Australia.

This area encompasses some of Australia's most impressive and significant natural treasures with Project Eden protecting and recreating the natural ecosystem with a number of goals, including the removal of feral animals.

In 1991 a feral barrier fence was established to keep out cattle, foxes, goats and other non native species. Integrated Recycling was selected to supply new plastic fencing and strainer posts to replace parts of the original weathered and damaged barrier fence.

The area required an appropriate non-corrosive, high strength, highly durable and UV resistant material that could easily cope with a hostile cyclone prone environment that experiences hyper-saline, extreme solar radiation, high evaporation, and high winds with salt spray, moisture and dust.
