Korean Statistic of the Day: Reusable Paper

According to Statistics Korea, 81.3% of Korean office workers re-use the paper so that both sides would be printed. While this is a desirable practice overall as a matter of conservation, re-using the paper is sometimes known to cause public disclosure of sensitive information printed previously.

  1. This practice also exists in Japan. I worked at a city government in Japan for a few years, and we were supposed to re-use paper whenever possible. (Anything with sensitive information was supposed to be shredded.)

    I found the biggest problem with it was used paper jamming the printer. So much time got wasted on fishing out crumpled piece of used paper that got jammed.
