PAPER

Recycled

Description

Paper is made from wood, so when you are recycling paper, you are saving trees that we need to fight climate change.

 

Things to note when recycling paper:

  • Separate your paper from wet waste. Wet paper or soiled tissues are not recyclable.

  • Ensure that the paper is kept dry.

  • Make a paper-only box to keep your dry paper.

Why recycled paper?

  • In 2014, South Africa recovered 64% of its paper for recycling. In perspective, this is 1.1 million tonnes, which is enough to fill more than 1,200 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

  • Only 5% of households conscientiously recycle their paper, this means that there are still a lot of economic opportunities available to recycle paper and more trees can still be saved.

  • Saves landfill space: Recycling just a tonne of paper removes the need for three cubic metres of landfill space.

  • 24 trees are needed to produce a ton of writing paper.
