Make a new sheet before you begin. Name it Recycling Challenge #2.
The table below shows different types and amounts of materials commonly found in landfills, as well as the amount recovered by recycling.
- Fill in the rest of the table by writing a formula and copying it down the column
- Create a graph to show the amount of each type of waste
- Create a second graph to show the percentage of each material that is being recycled (Hint: you will need to add another column to your table and write another formula to get the percentages.)
|Types of Waste||Millions of Tons of Waste Created||Millions of Tons Recovered by Recycling||Millions of Tons Sent to Landfill|
