Statistics Canada’s 2004 Census numbers show that across the country about 27 % of waste is recycled – about 112 kilograms per capita.

British Columbia has always been a leader in Canada – the 2004 Census found that 37.7 % of waste was diverted in B.C.

The largest city in BC, Vancouver reached more than 50 % diversion from the landfill through waste reduction efforts.

I would love to see a new Census with recent recycling numbers and compare them to these 2004 waste diversion rates, as I'm certain that the numbers have climbed in the last 5 years with a lot more items accepted in the recycling stream now.
