Hazardous Waste

According to an IBISWorld report, Hazardous Waste Hauling in Australia, demand for hazardous waste hauling services is relatively high, due to the dangerous nature of the waste and the harm that it can cause to people and the environment.

In spite of a recent slump in returns, industry revenue is expected to continue to increase at a steady rate over the next five years, as hazardous waste volumes from the medical, construction, and hospitality sectors increase due to economic conditions remaining relatively sound.
