OCC recovered in the US annually

Lynn asks:

Do you know how many tons of corrugated are recycled in the United States annually? Thanks so much!

We recover over 29 million tons of OCC each year. Much of our OCC is exported with forty percent going to China and additional quantities exporting to other regions of the world. Recycling Markets (published twice monthly by NV Publications) is a good resource for news and data on fibre and waste paper recovery and recycling.
