We recycle on average about 90 tons of pre consumer paper waste per month. For each ton of paper that we recycle, we save an average of 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water.
So…on a monthly basis, we save about 1,530 trees, 34,200 gallons of oil, 120 cubic yards of landfill space, 360,000 kilowatts of energy, and 630,000 gallons of water.
