The Waste Remediation and Materials Recovery Services industry minimises the impact of waste generation and industrial activity on the environment. The industry has been operating in an increasingly favourable environment, as attitudes about waste and recycling have been changing. Several government strategies have been implemented with the aim of reducing the volume of waste generated and increasing the amount of waste recycled and recovered. A hole in the ground is no longer considered appropriate for Australia's rubbish. Landfill is out of favour and recycling is in.
Companies in this industry are primarily engaged in the remediation and clean-up of contaminated buildings and mine sites; mine reclamation activities; removal of hazardous material, such as asbestos and lead paint; and other toxic material abatement. Industry firms also provide materials recovery and sorting services.
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.
