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.
