Waste regions (information applies statewide, map locations are for reference only)

Commercial and industrial waste is produced by business and commerce and includes waste from schools, restaurants, offices, retail and wholesale businesses, and manufacturing industries.

Excluding green waste, the amount of commercial and industrial waste recovered since 2011-2012 has averaged about 1,021,000 tonnes per year. The gap in the long-term trend graph is due to incomplete data in 2010-2011 (when waste reporting was voluntary).
