Interesting facts about rubbish and the effect on the North Lakes environment.

The word “recycling” is something that we frequently hear. We’re always reminded to know the environment, but you might not understand what recycling is? In other words, recycling involves processing rubbish and changing it into something new. The waste becomes a raw material that may be used for manufacturing a new product or it can be transformed into something else. You will be surprised to find items often generated from recycling comprise toothbrush handles, winter jackets and coffins! There are companies across the globe that specialise in recycling and here in Australia, Brisbane recycling and waste reduction is encouraging each person to do their part. 

As such, we have prepared some interesting facts you have to know about recycling in Australia. An Australian generates more waste than any individual from several other nations on earth.
