Revenue for the Waste Collection Services industry has grown steadily over the five years to 2017. Over the five-year period, the Waste Collection Services industry has benefited from rising industrial, construction and commercial business activity. Expansion in these sectors has led to greater waste production, thereby generating demand for industry services. Furthermore, growing interest in solid waste recycling and renewable energy generation from solid waste streams has created many opportunities for the industry to generate revenue from these new services. In addition, steady demand from the residential market has contributed to industry revenue growth over the five years to 2017, since changing economic conditions typically do not have a major effect on the amount of waste produced by households. This industry has also benefited from increased privatization of waste collection duties by local governments. These trends have helped boost demand from households and small businesses markets. Demand for industry services will continue to be driven by population growth, business creation and increased privatization over the next five years, boosting industry revenue over the five years to 2022.
