There has been address space recovered through previous efforts.....ARIN
staff would be the best place to get exact results.

Policy Proposal 2002-9 (fwd)
Actually.. I would be willing to bet just about any amount of money that
no-one would 'voluntarily' return unused IP space. If a company has it..
they are going to keep it. Period. I challenge someone to prove otherwise..
Chapter 11, etc. does not count; these are companies who are doing well. Try
to encourage them to return their unused IP space..
