Let's chat...how many of you recycle?
How many of you recycle newspapers?
Did you know that almost 40% of our total waste comes from newspapers and paperboard? Stats show in 1989 only 35% of newspapers were recycled where today that rate has jumped to well over 73%. Truth be told....we still need that number to grow!
Recycling newspapers has become much more common in our households as many of us have recycling integrated with our weekly trash pick up. Schools have easy to locate drop off bins and we as a society are more aware of the need to recycle.
