SPANIARDS recycled 65 percent of their waste paper and cardboard during the first nine months of this year, a total of 3.7 million tonnes.
The Spanish Paper Manufacturers' Association (ASPAPEL) said in a report yesterday that the figures show there has been a 6.7 percent growth on the same period last year. The Association said that by the end of the year, nearly 5 million tonnes will have been recycled which means that key rubbish disposal sites around the country, such as Son Reus on Majorca have been spared having to deal with a volume of waste equivalent to 50 large football stadiums filled to the brim. Such recycling also services to rid the country of 1 percent of its carbon emission total.
