Paper is among the most valuable recyclable materials in the world. Through recycling one tone of paper, we can avoid cutting 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of energy. In addition, recycling paper reduces methane and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. According to the EPA, recycling one ton of paper can reduce greenhouse gas levels by one metric ton of carbon equivalent.
