Visitors to City Hall Can Sit Prettier Now

Placentia City Hall visitors no longer will have to sit on old, splintering wooden benches.

The city replaced the old benches with 26 new ones made from recycled material. The new benches, placed outdoors at the Civic Center, look like ordinary wood but are actually made from a wood polymer product, a combination of recycled wood and plastic fibers.

The benches will never need protective sealants or paint and are termite-resistant.
