Ever wonder what becomes of all those newspapers you recycle? Repulped newspaper can become roof shingles. But that's not all, that's just one of many products. Others include new newsprint, boxboard for cereal and shoe boxes), wallboard, ceiling tiles, egg cartons, animal bedding and mulching material.
Recycle one tonne of old newpaper and save 19 trees. Toronto typically recycles 100,000 tonnes of newspaper annually - that's giving more than two million trees a tomorrow. And that's totally worth it!!
