Mohamed was delighted to discover that by recycling his waste paper, he was helping to save the Rainforests! • Every year we need a forest the size of Wales to provide all the paper we use in Britain. • The amount of waste paper buried each year in the UK would fill 103, 448 double Decker buses, which if parked nose to tail would go all the way from London to Milan. • One edition of a daily newspaper uses wood from 5000 trees. And every Sunday, 90% of all newspapers are thrown away, that's equal to sending 500, 000 trees to landfill. To recycle your paper please use the recycle bins provided in your recycle area please contact the HSE team for more information
