While society as a whole is creating far more waste than ever before, the collective conscious is far more attuned to the benefit and necessity of recycling. This FACT indicates the average amount of waste recovered, in tonnes per person in each Australian capital city. Recovered waste refers to the amount of waste (both recyclables and green waste) that was recycled or reused, and therefore not sent to landfill. This data was sourced from the Department of the Environment and Energy, Australian National Waste Report 2016. When it comes to waste recovery, Adelaide leads the way, at 1.953 tonnes per person.

High is good
