Key success factors for business in the waste and resource recovery industry


Waste industry

An IBISWorld March 2016 report, Waste treatment and disposal services in Australia, states that solid waste treatment and disposal is estimated to account for 68.8% of industry revenue This represents a minor decline over the past five years due to stronger growth in other segments of the industry. This high percentage is due to large solid waste volumes collected from commercial, industrial, construction and demolition customers. About one-quarter of segment revenue is expected to be generated by solid waste treatment processes, such as materials separation, bundling and compaction prior to transportation or disposal within a landfill facility. Solid waste disposal services are expected to account for the remaining three-quarters of segment revenue.
