How Glass is recycled

Recyclable glass items go to Cairns Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to be crushed, then proceed to reprocessors in South East Queensland.

A wide range of products can be made from recycled glass items, including:

  • New Bottles and Jars
  • Glassphalt for Road Resurfacing
  • Processed Sand, used in Golf Course Bunkers
