How much paper is recycled every year?



  1. 0 Votes

    In 2006, around 44 million tons of paper and cardboard was recycled, which put paper recycling at about a 50% rate. And in 2007, the amount of paper gathered for recycling amounted to over 300 pounds per person! Although that’s a lot of paper being recycled, it’s sad that it’s only 50% of paper used each year. If we move to doing more work online, we can cut this rate down significantly.

In 2007, the amount of paper recycled equals 360 pounds per person in the US, reported by the American Forest and Paper Association.
