Recycled newsprint goal reached

The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — The Ohio Newspaper Association said Friday that 40.7 percent of the newsprint its members used last year was recycled, narrowly surpassing a goal set with the state.

        The association said the percentage of aggregate recycled fiber for newsprint used by its 176 members last year topped the goal of 40 percent set with the state in 1992, up from 36.3 percent in 1998 and 24.8 percent in 1993.

        “Ohio newspapers answered the call of state government nearly 10 years ago and have met the challenge,” said John Lamps of the Gazette Newspapers in Jefferson and chairman of the State Newsprint Recycling Task Force.

        The agreement between the ONA and the administration of former Gov. George Voinovich was signed in June 1992, following legislative hearings and a campaign by the Voinovich administration to increase recycling of specific products.
