Paper Recycling


According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), approximately 71 million tons of paper and paperboard are used each year. It is also known that the average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. Considering these facts, paper recycling programs are essential to ensure that paper waste is disposed of responsibly. This is especially true for businesses that handle all sorts of documents and use various paper products in daily operations.
