Waste Collection Services in the US

Over the past five years, the Waste Collection Services industry has benefited from the recovery of the industrial, construction and commercial business sectors. As these sectors have expanded, they have produced more waste. In addition, steady demand from the residential market has helped stabilize industry revenue. Moving forward, demand will continue to be driven by population growth, privatization and business creation. Furthermore, the industry will benefit from the public's growing interest in recycling, as well as regulations create to promote recycling.

Operators in this industry collect hazardous and nonhazardous waste and recyclable materials. Nonhazardous waste includes municipal solid waste (household waste) and industrial and commercial waste. This industry also includes transfer stations where waste is transferred from local vehicles to long-distance automobiles for transport to disposal facilities. This industry does not account for government-provided services of a similar nature.

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.
