Did you know the average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about two billion trees per year. Half of it we simply throw away – enough every year to heat 50 million homes for twenty years. Currently only six percent of Kodiak’s waste stream is being recycled.
Western Alaska Land Title Company encourages you to recycle office paper, newspapers, cardboard, junk mail and paper packaging materials. Recycling saves trees which absorb carbon dioxide and is cost effective. The construction costs of a paper mill designed to use waste paper is 50 to 80% less than the cost of a mill using new pulp.
