Paper is a Recycling Success Story. Pulp and Paperworkers Explain Why.

by Clara Cozort | Jun 24, 2020

The U.S. paper industry has met or exceeded a 63 percent recycling rate since 2009. 

Paper and wood products are widely used across the United States — from cereal boxes, mail and paper tubes to corrugated and paper bags used to deliver items to your home. And these essential products have something in common — recyclability.  

Recycled wood fiber can be used at least seven times to create new products, and approximately 80 percent of U.S. paper mills depend on recovered fiber from recycling operations to make the everyday, essential products we rely on.  

Paper recycling is a success story thanks to the industry's investment and the millions who recycle. Make sure to do your part when you recycle and keep your products clean and dry.
