U.S. Paper Recovery Rate Reaches 65.8 Percent in 2017

The American Forest and Paper Association recently announced that in 2017, 65.8% of paper consumed in the US was recycled. “Paper recycling brings continued economic, environmental and social benefits to communities across the country,” said AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman.

Paper recovery for recycling helps extend the useful life of paper and paper-based packaging products, making it an integral part of the industry’s sustainability story. The industry has a goal to exceed 70 percent paper recovery for recycling by 2020 as part of its Better Practices, Better Planet 2020 sustainability initiative.
