Recycling Facilities in Canada
The Recycling Facilities industry in Canada is expected to expand consistently over the five years to 2019. The industry accepts unsorted waste and recyclable materials and sorts them into specific recyclable material streams. Material recycling facilities (MRFs) range from small operators with labour-intensive processes to large-scale MRFs that employ technological machinery to process recyclables. The industry has performed well over the past five years, boosted by expanding efforts by federal and local governments to develop programs to manage waste responsibly. The industry’s growth has been underpinned by the increase in recycling habits, which has increased the supply of waste, and therefore, demand for the industry’s services. Fluctuations in the prices of commodities and metals have affected the price of recycled materials. The industry is expected to grow over the five years to 2024 as similar trends drive growth.

The Recycling Facilities industry in Canada operates material recovery facilities that separate and sort recyclable materials from nonhazardous waste streams (i.e. garbage). Operators also sort commingled recyclable materials, such as paper, plastics, used beverage cans and metals into distinct categories.

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.
