Newspaper recycling includes the newspaper and other papers that arrive with it, for example – advertisements, comics, etc.
In 2012, the U.S. recycled about 44.2 million tons or 65.9% of paper/paperboard; the highest category in municipal solid waste materials. The average household discards 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. The American Forest & Paper Association reported that 66.2% of paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling in 2019. Papermakers in the United States recycle enough paper to fill a fifteen-mile-long train of boxcars. Recycling paper has several environmental benefits which include: – saving 17 trees, 280 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. The saving generated from such services represents 64% energy savings, 58% water saving, and 60 pounds less of air pollution.
