The graph below shows the percentages of different types of household waste recycled in a city between 1992 and 2002.
The bar graph displays the percentages of 4 different categories of residential waste recycled in a city in 1992, 1997 and 2002.
Overall, while the percentages of glass, paper and plastic recycled went up, that of cans fluctuated over the course of this 10-year period.
There was around 13% of glass recycled in 1992. This number increased to just below 30 percent in 1997 and to almost 50% in 2002, making glass the most recycled waste material by percentage in these two years. The percentages of paper recycled showed a similar upward trend, though they increased less significantly over the period, at around 12% in 1992, 18% in 1997 and 29% in 2002.
The percentage of cans recycled, in comparison, first experienced a drop from roughly 15% to 12% between 1992 and 1997, but then rose to just over 20% in 2002. Households recycled a lower percentage of plastic, at only 10%, than the other types of waste in 1992. This figure only grew to approximately 12% in 1997 before remaining at this level in 2002.
How to Vary Your Language
Note that “domestic waste” is not used by normal people in normal conversations. When you are talking about waste handling in an entire city or province, you use the terms “industrial waste” and “domestic waste” to separate the 2 main sources of waste products: factories and homes. However, here we’re not separating household waste from anything, so we should avoid using “domestic waste”.
How to Report the Biggest Figures
Version 2 is better than Version 1 because things can be measured by absolute weight as well. Something can have a lower percentage but higher net weight.
