1/ Data estimated in 2011. No estimate for 2010 or 2009

2/ Landing takeoff

3/ From the World Meteorological Organization's "Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2006"

4/ Increase in recycling reported can be partially attributed to better tracking of data

5/ Regulated waste includes hazardous waste, universal waste, and other regulated waste
