How much paper does the average UK office waste every year?

We’ve all been guilty of printing off the wrong document, producing unnecessary duplicates or leaving paper in the printing tray at the office, but over time this number adds up.

According to research conducted by Kyocera, the average office worker in the UK uses up to 45 pieces of paper per day, and a staggering two-thirds of that is considered waste.

To help put this into perspective, we’ve done the calculations and pulled together the relevant facts and stats to create an interactive graphic that highlights the extent of the paper waste problem.

If you are guilty of wasting paper or simply agree that too much paper is wasted by office workers every year, we’ve put together a short list of simple methods that will help reduce your paper wastage:

  • Instead of printing off a single-sided document, print on both sides
  • Don’t print off documents to proofread, use your computer instead (it’ll be a lot more accurate too!)
  • If you’re attending a meeting, ask yourself if everyone needs a print out
  • Only print out documents that you need a psychical copy of, this way you’re sure not to forget anything in the printer
