    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Waste Remediation and Materials Recovery Services industry has been operating in an increasingly favourable environment over the past five years. Waste recovery targets have encouraged the increased diversion of waste away from landfill towards industry-operated materials recovery facilities. Meanwhile, landfill levies have reduced the processing costs gap between landfill disposal and recovery, and reduced external competition for industry operators. However, a decline in manufacturing activity and weakening prices for scrap steel overseas have constrained industry revenue. These trends have contributed to strong revenue declines for some industry operators. Overall, revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 2.8% over the five years through 2017-18, to $5.0 billion...
