About This Report


Operators in the Sorted Material Recovery industry recycle materials that are then sold to wholesalers, reprocessors and manufacturers. The main materials sorted are metal, paper, glass and plastic. The volume of recyclable material sorted and sold is growing even though low levels of production and consumption have weighed on total waste volumes for much of the past five years. The recycling rate is climbing as public concern for the environment continues to grow and a number of government policies to divert waste from landfill underpins wider collection of recyclables and investment in sorting capacity.

This industry comprises firms that sort and recover recyclable material such as metal, paper, plastic and glass from mixed waste. It includes the operation of material recovery facilities (MRFs) and sorting of scrap metal.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
