Absolutely! In fact much of the cork on our grips is/ are probably recycled. If I am not mistaken: most of the cork in stuff that you and I use (other than wine corks) is recycled-- floor tiles, gaskets, insulation, soil conditioners, sports equipment, etc.
This leads me to think that the sentiment that it is so expensive simply because people will pay the prices, is an accurate assessment.
