The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has reported that 63.5 percent of paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling in 2013, down slightly from the previous year’s recovery rate of 65.1 percent.

The annual paper recovery rate has nearly doubled since 1990, and the industry has set a goal to exceed 70 percent paper recovery by 2020 as part of its Better Practices, Better Planet 2020 sustainability initiative. Paper recovery for recycling helps extend the life of paper and paper-based packaging products.
