The city with the highest number of tonnes discharged per person is the Darwin with 5,189,000 (per 100,000 people). The city with the lowest was Sydney with 422,890 tonnes per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the percentage households in each state using rainwater tanks as a water source. The numbers have increased in recent years thanks to the state restrictions on mains water usage, plus new state laws which require all new dwellings, plus select extensions and renovations on dwellings, to install rainwater tanks for private use.
The measures are aimed at making dwellings more sustainable, and relieving pressure on mains water supplies. The data was collected from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2013. Statistics for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory could not be obtained.

This FACT indicates the percentage of households that use wood as an energy source in each capital city in 2014. The use of woodfire ovens has seen a downward trend in recent years, with most dwellings using electric or gas-powered heaters. This figure however does give insight into how cold a city is.
The city that uses the most wood is Hobart, with 15.0 percent of households using the energy fuel. The city using wood the least is Brisbane, with just 2.2 percent of households; unsurprising, given it has the hottest year-round temperatures.
