In 2006 the UK waste market continued to consolidate, mainly through acquisitions. TheseÂ haveÂ again increased the market share of the industry’s leading players.Â
We have used theÂ latest reported turnover of the 20 largest UK waste management companies andÂ made our best guess at ranking themÂ as best we can, however, although with Cleanaway now part of Veolia,Â they now probably the biggest since the Veolia take-over in the autumn – we will await the company accounts to verify that.
It is no surprise that the gap between the leading half dozen companies and the remainder of the industry, has widened further. Since the Veolia-Cleanaway merger there are just 6 companies at the highest turnover level.Â
However,Â what a huge turnover it is for these companies at half a billion UK Pounds turnover and plus per annum.
