Manitobans are doing a great job of recycling. We collected 85,259.3 tonnes of packaging and printed paper in 2017, that’s an average of 70.7 kg per person! Here’s how the different parts of the province did:
|Region||Total kg Recycled||Average kg Recycled Per Capita|
|Winnipeg and Area||59,320,544||77.0|
|Post Secondary Education Institutions||798,233||70.0|
Last year, we were able to recover 61.9% of packaging and printed paper in the province. We can increase our rates by educating ourselves to become better recyclers.
