The proportions of nonpackaging paper tonnage that entered the solid waste stream in 1966 and that would do so in 1976 were established. Nonpackaging paper includes such items as newsprint, printing papers, stationery, towels, and household tissues, construction paper and board, and nonwoven disposables. Qualitative and quantitative information about nonpackaging paper was acquired and evaluated to arrive at forecasts of consumption in 1976. Disposal characteristics and rates are discussed. Calculations indicated that 14.3 million tons reached disposal sites in 1966 and this amount is expected to increase by 6.3 million tons by 1976. In pounds per capita, discarded paper will increase from 200 lb in 1966 to 250 lb in 1976, a net change of 25 percent.
