    Quantities of paper and wood recovered annually for recycling were estimated for all principal commercial uses in the United States, based on material consumption and end-use data. Principal categories of commercial uses were identified and relative quantities were compared. Some innovative or novel commercial product developments were identified. The potential for additional recovery from municipal solid waste, construction and demolition debris, primary timber processing residues, and other sources was also identified.
