IELTS Line Graph: Recycling Different Materials
by smarika sunuwar
The graph shows the proportion of four different materials that were recycled from 1982 to 2010 in a particular country.
The line graph illustrates the recycling rate for some selected materials, i.e. papers and cardboard, glass containers, aluminium cans and plastics between 1982 to 2010.
Overall, it is readily apparent that the recycling rate of all four materials increased over the period. However, paper and cardboard were most recycled over the years compared to rest of the materials.
In 1982, the recycling rates of cardboard and glass containers were approximately 65 and 50 percent respectively.Glass containers experienced a slight decrease of 10% in the year 1986. Above that, it started to rise steadily. Similarly, paper and cardboard had a slight fluctuation, reaching its peak in 1990 i.e 80%. Since then, it started to fall down.
Recycling rate of Aluminium cans and plastics were accounted as a least reusable item which was below 5 percent. Nevertheless, both the items displayed an upward trend where Aluminium cans outraced plastics at the end of the period.
