Picnic tables are not just for dining outdoors, these are gathering places for those that enjoy the outdoors. Recycled plastic picnic tables are not those generic looking tables that can be found at the local park. These outdoor tables now come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. Many people are now using picnic tables as the focal point for their outdoor landscape.

Those that own recycled plastic picnic tables are drawn to them for many different reasons. One of the main reasons that many are choosing these types of picnic tables over there wooden or metal counterparts are because they are made out of recycled materials. With many wanting a greener alternative in outdoor furniture are choosing those that are made out of recycled materials. By buying outdoor furniture that is made out of recycled materials helps give new life to containers that would otherwise end up in the local landfill.

Picnic tables that are made out of wood or metal have many drawbacks when compared to recycled plastic picnic tables. Metal will start to rust over a period of time when exposed to rain and snow. When wooden tables are also exposed to moisture they will start to warp and rot, this is not so with recycled plastic picnic tables. Tables that are made out of plastics will not rot, rust and never need to be painted.

Many of us that love to have a BBQ with friends and families also enjoy using their plastic picnic tables for prepping food. The reason for this is because bacteria’s such as salmonella for instance can contaminate surfaces that are porous. Since wood is a porous material the bacteria can seep into the surface and grow long after the tabletop has been wiped down. With plastics, the bacterium has a hard time seeping into the hard surface and wipe clean easily with a food safe disinfectant cleaner. The problem that many outdoor cooks have with metal table tops is that the tables often start to rust and paint can chip off into the food they are preparing.

When a recycled plastic picnic table becomes dirty due to dirt and grass, the clean up is an cinch. All one has to do is wash it down with a mild soap and water to remove the debris. This will help the table looking new for years to come. Many people find that the ease of care is a plus when it comes to owning plastic outdoor furniture. Wood and metal picnic tables require more care such as sanding, painting, sealing and staining once a year to keep them looking good during the summer months.

Owning a recycled plastic picnic table gives family and friends a place to gather during a backyard party. Not only do these types of picnic tables add extra seating during a BBQ, they also add function to any outdoor space when one just wants to relax after a long day at work and enjoy their outdoor space.
