Does Cairns household recycling actually get recycled? Yes, it does. Each year Cairns sends more than 8,000 tonnes of material to South East Queensland for reprocessing. Milk bottles, for example, end up in Brisbane where they are pelletised (ground into little plastic pellets) by one of our contractors. The pellets are the base material for new products, like new bottles and furniture. Got any other questions around recycling? You might find your answers here: πŸ‘‰https://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/water-waste-roads/waste/reduce-reuse/recycling-qa #nationalrecyclingweek
