Cigarette waste can be converted into plastic

Maybe someone is interested in this too? I just found a website that claims they can recycle parts of cigarette waste into plastic.


Well, cigarette filters are made of cellulose, so I believe they could be recycled to create paper or cardboard, but not plastic.
They probably make plastic using the external package wrapper only 😀

Hi @yolande,
Tom Szaky (Terracycle founder) has written a book called ‘Outsmart Waste’ that I thought was a pretty interesting read! Available on Kindle if you have one, or just google it! It goes through some information about Terracycle and how they recycle things that municipal waste collection doesn’t handle!
