Waste Management and Environmental Remediation

After three consecutive years of annual M&A activity in the U.S. valued above $1.26 trillion, this year may be even busier, particularly for waste management and remediation, a $90 billion domestic annual revenue industry.

Investment interest in the industry is driven by several factors, not the least of which is the impressive performance of publicly traded companies in the industry. The industry’s strong public equity performance and favorable debt financing has driven M&A valuation higher for waste and recycling companies.

The United States has more than 45,000 companies in the waste management and remediation industry. They include waste collection, waste treatment and disposal, as well as remediation services and recycling. For waste collection rising commercial activity drove higher industry revenue during the last two years. Continued growth in consumer spending will raise demand for waste treatment and disposal of specialty waste.
