    UK paper recycling drops
    July,
    2007 The UK is using less recycled paper than in the past, the latest
    figures from the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) have
    shown.While 4.6 million tonnes of recovered paper was used in 2004,
    only 4.5 million tonnes was used last year.The UK was also revealed to
    be slightly behind the European average in waste paper collection.
    Despite 62.4 per cent of waste paper such as used printer paper from
    office buildings being collected in 2005, in Europe as a whole the
    figure stood at 62.6 per cent.Peter Seggie from the CPI has said that
    even though UK paper manufacturers use a reasonable amount of recycled
    material to produce paper, more than 50 per cent of paper in the UK is
    imported.”This is sustainable as long as there are expanding overseas
    markets (as currently being experienced in China), but the increasing
    collection rates of European partners mean they will become strong
    competitors in the future,” Mr Seggie told website letsrecycle.”Should
    any issues arise with overseas demand, the UK will be among the first
    to suffer, because of the low domestic reprocessing level.”With some
    recycled paper being used to produce the next ream of printer paper,
    the need for further domestic recycling could become greater should the
    issues mentioned by Mr Seggie arise.
