EPA Releases 2016 and 2017 Facts and Figures Data on Paper and Paperboard
EPA publishes data annually to its website on material generation, recycling, composting, combustion with energy recovery and landfilling in the United States for a variety of materials and products.
EPA released its 2016 and 2017 Facts and Figures about Materials, Waste and Recycling data on paper and paperboard material-specific information on August 6, 2019. As part of improved efficiency, EPA has chosen to release data as it becomes available. EPA is planning to release the remainder of its 2016 and 2017 data later in 2019.
