Picnic tables are possibly the most popular use of British recycled plastic. They often have to put up with huge amount of use and abuse, everywhere from schools, pub gardens, motorway service areas, staff rest zones, remote country parks and canal banks to domestic gardens and urban green spaces.

Being made from recycled plastic also means that they are maintenance free as the plastic will not rot or degrade in any way, whether kids are constantly clambering over them or they are being battered by the salty sea air.

Many of our recycled plastic picnic tables are available flat-packed too, saving you money on the price and also saving you money on the shipping as they can be stacked more efficiently on pallets.

The Calder recycled plastic picnic table is currently the largest table in our range. Available with either a square or circular top, and the ability to seat 8 comfortably, the Calder can bring another level of usability to any outdoor area.
Extremely robust and able to withstand difficult conditions, this picnic table was redesigned in April 2018 and is only available semi-fabricated, as per the photo on the right. This means that we can now ship two on a double pallet, rather than each one needing four pallets of its own, creating huge savings for our customers.
Table width 1.2 metres, overall diameter 1.89 metres, weight 150kg.

Most of our picnic tables, and benches for that matter, are available flat-packed to reduce the cost.
They come with IKEA-style instructions, but this video below shows how simple they are to assemble.

FAQs about picnic tables

How long do your picnic tables last for?
Almost certainly in excess of 100 years, but we’re not sure about whether that means 101 years or 500 years. All that is “bad” about plastic is also “good” about plastic in this context.

I want some for my school. Do you do discounts?
Yes, we certainly do. We have a “Buy 4 Get 5” special offer that was set up with schools in mind, but this same offer is also open to any organisation or company buying four or more picnic tables.

Do they ever splinter? I am concerned about kids using them getting splinters.
No, they will never split or splinter in any way.

The wooden picnic tables we had were under the trees in the damp and started to rot in not much more than five years. What guarantee will you give that your British Recycled Plastic picnic tables won’t do the same?
We can unequivocally guarantee that our picnic tables will never rot. Not ever. They are chemically inert so there is absolutely no organic matter that can decay in anyway.

How do I clean the picnic tables?
You can give them a wipe down with a damp cloth every now and then. Some owners give them an annual blast with a jet wash, particularly if they are under trees where sap can get on them.

Do they need to be fixed to the ground?
It depends where they are really. They can weigh up to a quarter of a tonne (in the case of the Calder) so they are unlikely to be moved in most situations, particularly if they are behind locked gates, but just in case, we do offer both soft and hard ground fixing kits as optional extras.

How are they transported and how much does it cost?
In common with all of our products, all of of our recycled plastic picnic tables are sent out via the national pallet network, strapped to standard 1000mm x 1200mm pallets. Most picnic tables go on two pallets and, if they are flat-packed, can be stacked five high on the same two pallets. If they are fully assembled then they can be stacked two high.
Sending them to most of the UK costs £40+VAT per pallet, although London and places that are further away from the main areas cost a little more.
You are also welcome to arrange your own transport.

What colours are the picnic tables available in?
They are either fully black, fully brown or with black or brown frames and seats and tops in any combination of blue, red, green and bright lime.

Why can’t I have yellow? I’ve seen other companies do it.
After a number of years experimenting with blends, we have found it very difficult to produce a consistent yellow plastic without introducing what, to us, is an unacceptable amount of virgin material into the mixture. This has led us switching to a bright lime colour, similar to that used on hi-viz jackets, as our alternative. So far, this has gone down very well with our customers.
We are not in a position to comment on the amounts of virgin plastic used by other companies in the production of their yellow. Perhaps you can ask them yourselves.
