US paper recycling hits record high April
2006 – New York (NY): The amount of paper recovered from recycling in
the US reached a record 51.5 per cent of all paper products in 2005,
reports The Wall Street Journal Online.The rise was in part due to
the demand for recycled paper fibre around the world, especially in
China which doesn’t have enough trees to cope with its rapid
industrialisation, the report said.
