Councillor Clarke says it is a major saving on landfill and a Queensland first."We now are heading the rest of the country, but for Geelong [in Victoria], with total recycling of glass," he said.
"We were virtually burying 150 tonnes or so each week. We could only recycle 18 per cent of the total that people put in their bins.
"Now we are able to recycle 98 per cent - virtually recycle the whole caboose."
