Kerbstones made from recycled plastics will be trialled by Wokingham Borough Council.
Plastic kerbing reduces the amount of carbon produced in manufacturing, transport and construction by about 40% compared to concrete kerbing.
The council will trial the plastic kerbing in three locations where kerbs have previously been damaged. It will review the performance and resilience of the kerbing along with the environmental benefits.
Cllr Gregor Murray, the council'sexecutive member for climate emergency, said: 'Exploring further use of recycled products like these kerbstones are the type of changes we are looking into as we aim to be a carbon neutral borough by 2030,” said Cllr Gregor Murray, executive member for climate emergency.
I look forward to reviewing the success of these trials to see if the kerbing could be rolled out to other locations in the future.'
