Paper

Paper is one of the most versatile and important materials used in homes, schools, offices and businesses throughout the world. In 2007, 56 percent of the paper used in the U.S. was recovered for recycling. Thatís an average of 360 pounds of paper recovered for every person in the country. Because of this high recovery rate, the paper industry set a new goal of a 60 percent recovery rate by 2012.
