Recycling a ton of white paper can save:

  • 26,498 ltrs of water
  • 1,438 ltrs of oil
  • 3 cubic metres of landfill space
  • 4000kw of energy (enough to boil 24000 kettles of water) 
  • 1,32tons of C02 emissions
Paper can be recycled 5-7 times!

Paper creates approximately 11,5 indirect jobs.

Glass can be recycled more than a million times.

    • One recycled aluminum can saves enough energy to power a television or computer for 3 hours or a 100-watt light bulb for 20 hours.
  • Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to light a 100-watt light bulb for 4 hours.
  • Recycling a one-gallon plastic milk jug will save enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for 11 hours.
  • Recycling one pound of steel conserves enough energy to light a 60-watt bulb for 26 hours (5,450 BTU). (Approx. 7 cat food cans or 4 dog food cans = 1 lb. [EPA])
  •  WHAT IS RECYCLING?


    Recycling is a process in which waste materials are used to create new products.As a result we have a reduced consumption of energy ,raw materials,air pollution from incineration and water resource pollution.

    Recycling is therefore a key aspect of modern conservation of solid waste.


     FACTS:



     
     

    • Recycling a one-foot high stack of newspapers saves 71.3 kilowatt hours of electricity...enough to heat a home for 17 hours.
    • A six-pack of recycled aluminum cans saves enough energy to drive a car 5 miles.
    •  An average office produces on average 1 kg of paper per day and almost all of this paper can be recycled.
    • Pollution poses a threat to human health and is responsible for approximately 5% of human diseases.
    • Recycling saves water and electricity and prevents unnecessary chemicals from entering our water resources and our environment which impacts climate change.
    • An estimated 70% of paper collected is used to produce cartonboard and containerboard.
