According to the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA), 68% of all paper consumed in the United States was recycled in 2021. The report also shows that the recycling rate for older corrugated cardboard (OCC) containers increased significantly to 91.4% in 2021 (compared to 88.8% in 2020). This is a good balance sheet that leads experts to say that paper recycling is stronger than ever. The report also shows that nearly $5 billion is being invested in projects from 2019 to 2024 to recycle about 8 million additional tonnes of recovered fibre.
