We also make recycling convenient by supplying you with the necessary equipment needed for storing your scrap paper.
For printing, graphics, and direct mail firms seeking ways to dramatically reduce their carbon footprints, a custom recycling program with Integrity Recycling and Waste Solutions helps them contribute to sustainability while realizing the value of their paper scrap. The positive environmental impact made by recycling paper scrap is impressive:
- One ton of recycled paper saves 3,700 pounds of lumber and 24,000 gallons of water as opposed to one ton of paper made from wood pulp.
- Fabricating one ton of recycled paper uses 64% less energy and 50% less water, generates 74% less air pollution, saves approximately 17 trees (35’ tall), and creates five times more jobs than one ton of paper products from virgin wood pulp.
- In addition to saving all those trees, recycling one ton of printing or copier paper saves more than two tons of wood, two barrels of oil (enough fuel to run the average car for 1260 miles or from Dallas to Los Angeles), 4100 kilowatts of energy (enough power for the average home for six months), 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space (one family-size pickup truck) and 60 pounds of air pollution.
