Waste Business Journal's Latest 2021 Directory Details the Evolving Waste Industry

Waste Business Journal's latest Directory of Waste Processing & Disposal Sites details the private sector's increasing control of the country's waste and recycling infrastructure. The top two companies Waste Management and Republic Services now control almost 50 percent of the MSW being landfilled annually.

That comes after another busy year of industry M&A, notably Waste Management's acquisition of Advanced Disposal which in turn led to divestitures picked up by GFL Environmental. GFL's U.S. share of landfill volume consequently doubled from 2 percent to 4 percent. Waste Management's share jumped from 26 percent to 29 percent.
