Waste Treatment & Disposal Services in Canada

The Waste Treatment and Disposal Services industry in Canada consists of enterprises engaged in operating a variety of waste treatment and disposal sites, including landfills, incinerators or other types of disposal facilities for hazardous or nonhazardous waste. While demand for recycling has been a long-term trend, waste production has continued to grow. The industry has experienced some consolidation over the past five years. Another trend has been increased environmental regulation, which has diverted material from landfills to recycling facilities. Although increased recycling efforts will likely remain a long-term threat to some industry operations, the industry is anticipated to grow over the five years to 2024. An improving economy and rising income levels are anticipated to help consumer spending rise.

The Waste Treatment and Disposal Services industry owns and operates waste treatment or disposal facilities, including waste combustors (waste-to-energy plants), solid waste landfills and compost dumps. Many companies in this industry also provide waste collection and hauling services and are also included in the Waste Collection Services industry (IBISWorld report 56211CA).
