Paper recycling facts

  • If we recycled all newspapers, we could save over 250 million trees each and every year.
  • Twenty-four trees are cut down to make one ton of newspaper.
  • The average UK family throws away six trees worth of paper in their household bin a year.
  • Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials.
  • Paper and card make up about a fifth of the typical household dustbin. About half of this consists of newspapers and magazines.
  • Each Christmas as much as 83 square kilometres of wrapping paper ends up in UK rubbish bins, enough to cover an area larger than Guernsey.
  • Although, figures could be much worse. Luckily, two-thirds of paper is recycled in the UK, making it one of the most widely recycled waste items nationally.
