Recycling Facilities in Canada
The Recycling Facilities industry in Canada accepts unsorted waste and recyclable materials and sorts them into specific recyclable material streams. Material recycling facilities (MRFs) range from small operators with labour-intensive processes to large-scale MRFs that employ technological machinery to process recyclables. The industry has performed well over the past five years, boosted by expanding efforts by federal and local governments to develop programs to manage waste responsibly. However, following strong years of growth in the decade leading up to the reporting period, industry growth has notably lagged in recent years. This has been partly due to declining commodity prices, which have pushed down the price of plastic, eroding the cost advantage of recycled plastic.
This industry operates material-recovery facilities that separate and sort recyclable materials from nonhazardous waste streams (i.e. garbage). Operators also sort commingled recyclable materials, such as paper, plastics, used beverage cans and metals into distinct categories.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
