For immediate release

Chicago, IL – September 20, 2021 – Today Zacks Equity Research discusses waste management including Quest Resource Holding Corporation QRHC, Republic Services, Inc. RSG, Waste Connections, Inc. WCN and Waste Management, Inc. WM .


The waste management industry is a beneficiary of the economic health, which is currently recovering from the pandemic blues, benefiting from an increase in vaccination campaigns. Successful mass vaccination should help the industry and its players gradually regain their full-scale capabilities.

In particular, Zacks’ garbage collection services sector has appreciated 12.9% year-to-date, compared to the 20.7% rise in the S&P 500 index and the decline in 17.3% of the larger business services sector of Zacks.

The future looks bright

According to Allied Market Research, the global waste management market size is expected to reach $ 2,339.8 billion by 2027, up from $ 2,080 billion in 2019, with a CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2027 While population growth, industrialization and urbanization remain the main drivers of the industry, government measures to control illegal dumping, adoption of technology and the increasing use of advanced solutions for collection and recycling are other catalysts.

With China no longer importing much of the waste from the United States, traditional disposal methods have struggled to cope with the growing load. In a situation like this, the use of computer technology in waste treatment is expected to increase in the days to come. In addition, the growing awareness of government agencies and the public regarding advanced waste management solutions and the need to develop waste-to-energy solutions will likely open up market opportunities for waste management companies.
