Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The barriers to entry in the waste collection industry are relatively low, especially when compared to other industries in the waste management sector. In order to enter the industry an operator would require a minimum number of vehicles for waste collection, whether owned or leased. The cost of entry is low and some of it is recoverable through re-sale when exiting the industry. Environmental regulations are also significantly lower than those applied to other industries in the sector.

In order to enter the market, an operator must first win a contract, either municipal or commercial waste collection. Municipal contracts average seven years and contracts can be difficult to obtain if the incumbent is an in-house provider.
