One man's trash: Industry revenue will increase following a drop in commodity prices and rise in population



Abstract

Recycling Facilities in the US

The industry has had mixed results over the past five years, with revenue projected to decline. Strong demand for recycling services can primarily be attributed to increasing public environmental consciousness. With concerns rising over the environmental impacts and threats to public health that landfills present, state and local government funding for recycling services, an alternative to landfills, has increased. However, revenue declines of the past five years have been tied to a drop in commodity prices. Although the market for recycled commodities is still relatively new, the sale of recycled materials had grown. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to grow as demand for recycling services increases and commodity prices rise. The number of small industry operators will grow as small communities across the country develop recycling programs.

This industry operates recycling facilities, which separate and sort recyclable materials such as paper, plastic and glass from waste streams. Operators also sort commingled recyclable materials into distinct categories, as well as refine goods into recycled commodities (i.e. convert plastic bottles into raw plastic) and sell recycled materials to manufacturers and wholesalers. This industry does not include government bodies that directly provide these services to the public.

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.
