How much office paper goes to landfills every year?

    This is a very specific question and therefore hard to estimate.  I am guessing that a very small percentage of paper is recycled contrasted to what is wasted.  Ten percent of all solid trashed is recycled.  Most consumers throw away 650 pounds of paper a year.  Doing this math, I would assume that billions of ounds are wasted annually both by private sonsumers and corporations.  Supposedly, enough office paper is wasted annually to create a wall 12 feet high from L.A. to NYC.
