DETROIT EDISON RECYCLING PROGRAM SAVES THE EQUIVALENT OF 5,000 TREES

 DETROIT, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison's office paper recycling program last year helped save the equivalent of nearly 5,000 trees -- about as many as in Detroit's Palmer Park.
 In 1992, Detroit Edison employees recycled 293.5 tons of paper. The recycling program helped save the equivalent of 1,262 cubic yards of landfill space, more than 2 million gallons of water, nearly 734 barrels of oil and 1.2 million kilowatthours of electricity.
 Detroit Edison began its office paper recycling program in 1991.
