Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

Investment requirements are high and rising as the industry shifts from the disposal of waste in landfill to treatment of waste. Despite this, wage costs represent significant costs for operators. Wage costs can be used as a proxy for labour costs and are estimated to account for 18% of industry revenue in the current year. Depreciation, which can be used as a proxy for capital investment, is estimated to account for 7.5% of industry revenue in the current year. The capital-to-labour ratio in 2016-17 is estimated to be 1:2.4, indicating that for every £1.00 spent on capital, £2.40 is spent on labour. The overall level of capital intensity has increased over the past five years, as operators look to invest in more capital equipment and infrastructure.
