The graph below shows waste recycling rates in the U.S. from 1960 to 2011.


Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.


Answer :


The line chart provides information about the percentage of recycling in the U.S between 1960 to 2011.

Overall, there was an upward trend in Total Waste Recovery and Percent Recycling over the period shown. However, it is clear that recycling suddenly changed from 1985 to 2011 and had no sign of decreasing during the period.

In 1960, the quantity of trash which was recycled accounted for 5.6 million tons, followed by a minimum growth to 8 million tons in 1970. By 1985, the total waste recovery was just under 17 million and stayed at 16.7 million tons in 1985. Similarly, Percent Recycling saw a slight rise with beginning at 6.4% in 1960, going up to 7.3% and 10.1% in 1975 and 1985 respectively.

In contrast, from 1985 onward, that period witnessed a dramatic growth. The total waste recovery reached 33.2 million tons in 1990, which was double as high as it had been in 1985. That continuously climbed to 69.5% in 2000 and peaked at 86.9% in 2011. Meanwhile, the proportion of recycling considerably augmented to 28.5% in 2000 and finished at 34.7% in 2011.

The line chart (wrong word) provides information about the percentage of recycling in the U.S between 1960 to (wrong word) 2011. In particular, it show two indicators of recycling, the percentage of goods recycled and the tonnage of waste recovery.


Overall, there was an upward trend in Total Waste Recovery and Percent Recycling over the period shown. However, it is clear that the trend rate for both indicators of recycling suddenly changed in from 1985; they went up. to 2011 and had no sign of decreasing during the period.


In 1960, the amount quantity of trash which was recovered recycled accounted for was 5.6 million tons. This was followed by a minimum growth to 8 million tons in 1970. By 1985, it the total waste recovery was just under 17 million and stayed at 16.7 million tons in 1985. This represented an overall growth rate of about 0.4 tons per year. Similarly, the Percent Recycling also rose slightly, saw a slight rise, with beginning at 6.4% in 1960, going up to 7.3% and 10.1% in 1975 and 1985 respectively. This represented an overall growth rate of 0.15 percentage points per year over the 25-year period.


In contrast, from 1985 onward, there was that period witnessed a dramatic growth in both measures. The total waste recovery reached 33.2 million tons in 1990, which was double what as high as it had been in 1985. That continuously climbed to 69.5% in 2000 and peaked (wrong word - there is no peak on the graph. There is a maximum value, though.) at 86.9% in 2011. Meanwhile, the proportion of recycling considerably augmented to 28.5% in 2000 and finished at 34.7% in 2011. (Compare the rates of increase after 1985 to those before 1985.)


Avoid anthropomorphic verbs: "see, witness, experience" in Task 1. These are appropriate for newspaper reports and stories, but not for mathematical, academic writing.

Peak: This graph shows two peaks. The values increase on one side of the peak and decrease on the other side.


I am really grateful for your help. Thank u so much

The graph gives information on the proportion of the national recycled waste product by the Americans from 1960 to 2011.

Overall, the total waste recovered and the percentage of it that was recycled had an increasing trend over a 51-year period.

There was a a stable increased seen in number of the total recovered waste products in the US from 1960 to 2011. In fact, in the first given year the number of the garbage that was recovered was only 5.6(million tons) and it it continuously rose in the succeeding years. Apparently, the figure tripled in 1985 (16.7million tons). Moreover, a noticeable climb in the number of the recovered waste was observed in 1990, where it increased to about twice as much twice from the previous year (33.2 million tons). Also, it retained its increasing pain the following years until it reached its peak in 2011 of 86.9 (Million tons)

Meanwhile, the percentage of the recycled waste products had the same increasing pattern over the 51-year period. In fact, in 1960 the percentage of the recycled garbage in US was only 6.4% and it gradually went up until in 1990, where a sharp climbed of 16% was observed. Moreover, the continuous growth in the number was observe up to 34.7% in 2011.
