NOTES:
--> In 2004 a few categories were added (White Goods, Electronics, and Tires), and totals adjusted accordingly.
--> Many data points were missing in the Statistics Canada catalogue. With the exception of the three variables listed above, all blank spaces in this table are cases where data was not available for that type of material for that year. Materials may and likely still were being recycled, but we don\'t know what quantity was recycled.
