1. This information covers only those companies and local waste management organizations that reported non-hazardous recyclable material preparation activities and refers only to that material entering the waste stream and does not cover any waste that may be managed on-site by a company or household. Additionally, these data do not include those materials transported by the generator directly to secondary processors, such as, pulp and paper mills while bypassing entirely any firm or local government involved in waste management activities.
2. Until 2012, waste diversion data were derived from a survey administered by RECYC-QUÉBEC. For reference year 2014, RECYC-QUÉBEC data were unavailable: diversion amounts for the province of Quebec were derived using a combination of data collected through the 2014 Waste Management Industry Survey and imputation of historical RECYC-QUÉBEC data.
