The 9th edition of the 'Waste Management Market Report - UK 2017-2021 Analysis' addresses the management of controlled waste arisings from the municipal, commercial & industrial, construction & demolition sectors. This edition represents a significant departure from previous reports in that it focuses on the business of waste management contracting as opposed to an analysis of waste arisings, waste collection, treatment and disposal methods etc. Therefore, there is a greater emphasis on market size, trends and mixes by value.

In 2016, the UK waste management contracting market was estimated to be slightly down on 2015, due to the impact of Central Government cuts to local authority environmental services budgets and the impact of falls in global commodity prices on recyclables materials. Up to 2015, annual growth was primarily driven by the implementation of EU Directives, aimed at reducing the volumes of landfilled waste and increasing the levels of material recovery through recycling, composting and energy-from-waste. Above all, the impact of the Landfill Tax escalator on landfill gate fees has made these alternative approaches more commercially attractive.
Growth in contractors annual revenues has been driven by the development of relatively new income streams, including segregated recycling collections, organic waste collections and the development & operation of energy-from-waste (efw) plants. Investment in the expansion of efw and recycling infrastructure capacity has contributed towards growth in aggregate industry revenues from these sub-sectors, and diversification into new areas of product recycling e.g. Weee (waste electronic & electrical equipment), elv (end-of life vehicles) and mixed plastic packaging have also stimulated growth.
The creation of added-value income from the sale of recycled materials, compost, electricity sales and refuse derived fuel (rdf) which has also brought in recent market entrants from the energy, facilities management, composting and manufacturing sectors (especially paper). There is still a need for the UK to improve commercial and industrial waste recycling although in recent years there have been improvements in recycling rates, mainly driven by voluntary initiatives, there being far fewer legislative drivers than for municipal waste.
In the second half of 2016 through to early 2017, commodity and recyclate prices for some grades have recovered. Over the short term, industry prospects will still be determined by EU legislation. However, now that Article 50 has been signed, there may well be a possible slowdown in household spending combined with rises in imported goods, driven by uncertainties surrounding 'Brexit' and likely volatility in the economy. There are also concerns as to whether the Government will remove some of the more prescriptive elements of EU waste legislation and replace them with voluntary targets for local authorities and businesses.
