The graph below shows the amounts of waste produced by three companies over a period of 15 years.

The line graph compares three companies in terms of their
waste
output
between the years 2000 and 2015. It is clear that there were significant changes in the amounts of
waste
produced by all three companies shown on the graph. While companies A and B saw
waste
output
fall over the 15-year period, the amount of
waste
produced by
company
C
increased considerably. In 2000,
company
A produced 12 tonnes of
waste
, while companies B and
C
produced around 8 tonnes and 4 tonnes of
waste
material respectively. Over the following 5 years, the
waste
output
of companies B and
C
rose by around 2 tonnes, but the figure for
company
A fell by approximately 1 tonne. From 2005 to 2015,
company
A cut
waste
production by roughly 3 tonnes, and
company
B reduced its
waste
by around 7 tonnes.
By contrast
,
company
C
saw an increase in
waste
production of approximately 4 tonnes over the same 10-year period. By 2015,
company
C
’s
waste
output
had risen to 10 tonnes, while the respective amounts of
