Please note:
  • PollutionWatch classifies releases, disposals and transfers differently than Environmental Canada's NPRI program. These varying method of presentation will yield different perspectives on the data. Please see Understanding the Data for a more detailed discussion.
  • The units of measurement for data presented below are in kilograms (kg), excluding hexachlorobenzene which is measured in grams (g) and dioxins/furans which are measured in grams (g) TEQ.
  • Recycling data is not included in total releases or transfers data. To obtain recycling data, please go to Who is Polluting? or Pollution Rankings.
