A clear cut comparison of the recycling pattern of Sydney and Melbourne when compared to the global recycling proportions is depicted in the given pie charts.
Overall, it is clear that in both cities, the proportions of recycling are very different when compared to the worldwide data.
As per the first chart, the most recycled item around the world is paper, which is recorded to over a half of the total recycled items (paper, plastic and glass). The second most item of recycling is plastic at 34%, which is almost thrice than the proportion of glass recycling.
On the other hand, a considerable proportion of glass is recycled in both Sydney and Melbourne. This is almost two fifth in the former city (38%) and over a half of the total (55%) in the latter city. A notable difference is seen in the case of plastic recycling between these cities. While it is exactly two-fifth of the total in Sydney, in Melbourne, it is almost just its half (21%). No major disparity is seen in both cities’ paper recycling. This is seen in the range between 22 and 24%.
