More trash, more recycling across Canada: StatsCan

Canadians are stuffing their blue boxes full, recycling larger quantities than ever and diverting more waste from landfills, Statistics Canada suggests in a report released Friday.
The average Canadian recycled 112 kilograms in 2004, up from 71 kilograms in 2000, the report said. The increase is in large part linked to better access to recycling programs across the country, said the study that also noted that Canadians were also producing greater quantities of waste.
