Waste and recycling tracking - 2021 data

This page shows graphs of data I collected in 2021 on the amount of rubbish I disposed of that year. I started collecting data in August of 2019, so 2020 and 2021 cover my first two full years of data. For more recent data, see my current waste data page.

My overall average daily waste output for the year was 114.69 g/day.

Below is a stacked histocurve showing the weight of waste I produced split by recycling category. The area under the graph represents my total waste output. Click on the graphs for larger versions.

 

Daily waste data histocurve

 

Some brief points to note about the graphs:

  1. Green categories are recycled by the council; general waste in red isn't recycled.
  2. This is output for a single person.
  3. Data points correspond to when I do the bins, roughtly fortnightly.
  4. For info about how the graphs are generated, see my Graphs of Waste posts on the topic.
  5. The script used to generate the graphs can be found on GitHub.

To view histograms showing the actual values recorded for each of the waste types, select one of the graphs below. They all have different scales on the y-axis, so they're not visually comparable.
