Recycle Right - Cairns Regional Council

How Paper and Cardboard is recycled

Recyclable paper and cardboard items go to Cairns Materials Recovery Facility MRF for sorting and baling, then proceed to reprocessors in South East Queensland.

There are several uses for paper fibres before they are no longer suitable for recycling. Some products made from recycled paper and cardboard items are:

  • Newsprint
  • Tissue
  • Corrugated packaging
