NR means "not reported".

The statistics shown only reflect materials flowing through BC Hydro's Materials Distribution Center (MDC) in Surrey with the exception of wood poles that are sent directly to the management company and do not pass through MDC. These figures do not represent all of BC Hydro's waste disposal and recycling. Some data is based on estimates.

Total resources recovered remained consistent with the fiscal 2011 results. An increase in the amount of scrap metal recovered was offset by a reduction in the quantity of wood poles recovered.
