Needing statistics for Al and paper recycling

One and all,

I am looking for some statistics for paper, aluminum cans and paperboard 
recycling efforts. I have several companies that have on-site recycling of the 
above 3 materials. 

They are interested in the following statistics-what does recycling a pound of 
each of the materials do? ie for every pound of aluminum cans recycled, x 
amount of ore are not drilled, x gallons of oil saved, x kilowatt hours of 
electricity are saved, x amount of trees not cut down, etc.

I have looked at the sites for aluminum can and paperboard recycling but 
neither list any kind of statistic that is useful other than we now recycle ~65 
% of all aluminum cans made.

The companies would like the info to show their employees just what effect 
they can have on the environment by recycling these wastes.
