Wasteshed Market Radius Studies – Geographical Market Focus
WIH Resource Group’s Wasteshed Market Radius Studies & Reports capture all waste disposal operations within a given market. They provide you with analysis of the major players by market share; show you historical trends in pricing, waste disposal volume and disposal capacity specific to the geographic area included in the radius of the study.

Detailed Data on all Public and Private Players
Our report will include a detailed listing of all landfills, transfer stations, waste-to-energy plants, materials recovery facilities, construction & demolition facilities, composting facilities and others operating within an agreed upon mileage radius of a particular origin point. A spreadsheet and map depict each facility and provides details such as the name, location, size of the facility, the daily volume and price charged for each type of waste accepted, days and hours of operation, transportation access (rail, road and waterway), distance from the center of the study area, capacity, the names, addresses and phone numbers of the owner and operator, and much more.

Formatted to Help You Understand the Wasteshed Market
The detailed data in the report, spreadsheets and map, is provided in Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) format that can also be provided in hardcopy.

Historical pricing and volume and capacity data for each facility
WIH Resource Group and its partner researchers have surveyed the industry since 1991 and consequently can provide very detailed historical data on each facility, including those that have subsequently closed, going back that far in time. The historical data on pricing, volume and capacity give you valuable insight into how the local market is trending, how the market share among each of the players is changing, and the extent of all those changes over time.

Waste Generation, Recovery, Net Export and Disposal within the Market Study Area
Clients have the option to add an analysis of local market characteristics. The total volume of waste and recyclables generated within the study area are estimated using the latest Census Bureau statistics and known per capita discard rates. The volume of waste moving through recycling facilities is combined with local state recovery rates to estimate total recycling for the study area. When subtracted from waste generation, we have post-recovery waste volume which we compare with volumes going into local landfills and waste-to-energy plants to determine how much locally generated waste is either being exported to other regions or how much waste is being imported from other regions.

Market Dynamics
WIH’s Wasteshed Study and Radius Report gives you thorough understanding of the market, the players, the dynamics, average pricing, waste generation, recovery, and disposal particular to the area. Each facility profile is organized by location within the radius, its current known information and the type of facility to make it quickly accessible and useful.

Market Trends
Historical data on pricing, volumes and capacity are also available and can be added to reports to show the evolution and dynamics of the market over time.

Transportation Cost Analysis
WIH Resource Group also provides additional services relative to Wasteshed Market studies such as developing transportation cost estimates for transporting waste from specific locations, as requested for an additional cost. Transportation cost estimates can be developed for truck, railroad and barging (as appropriate) of wastes and recyclables from origin locations to either real or hypothetical destinations to utilize to compare costs to existing market transport and disposal scenarios.

This section provides an overview of the standard applied methodology the WIH Resource Group Project Team employs to accomplish the Client’s objectives as agreed upon with Clients through ongoing communications.

Standard Method of Approach to Wasteshed Studies – WIH Resource Group has used major components of this approach successfully for various other projects and clients, and believes it is well suited for assisting the Client in evaluating the issues in question. We remain open to modifying our approach upon further discussions with Client.

WIH Resource Group is experienced in developing regional Wasteshed Studies and has developed them for a wide range of Client that was looking to site, sell or acquire landfills. The results and findings from the Study WIH develops for you will give you a better understanding of the regional wasteshed and markets, the seemingly largest question for developers of new landfills.  Studies include  regional solid waste and biosolids disposal capacity demand market needs assessment, projected disposal demand capacity for the next 5- 10- and 20- years, market disposal pricing, transportation cost analysis, recycling efforts impacts (i.e. diversion from disposal), survey of existing site life of competing facilities and would in part build off the previous study coupled with current Intel we gather from other sources.

In addition, we develop a cost estimate for the landfill development permitting such as State permit fees, site plan engineering costs, survey/aerial mapping, county zoning fees, State annual fees, outside consultants, meetings, signs, printing, etc. (general estimates), and recurring annual costs to maintain the permits, assuming the landfill is not fully developed for 5-10 years.

The results and findings from the study would provide a greater level of confidence for you concerning the wasteshed, competing landfills’ remaining capacity and current market pricing for disposal to aid you in making an informed decision about the development / sale / acquisition of a landfill.
Our approach is to complete the required elements in a logical, sequential order as agreed upon with the Client to best meet their individual needs.

Pricing for Services
Our approach to pricing is based on a straight time and materials basis and services are charged for at an hourly rate. Final cost of service is dependent on the final Scope of Work as agreed upon with the Client and are quoted in flat inclusive “not to exceed” rate. Cost of services for wasteshed studies range from $18,000 – $35,000 USD, again dependent on the detailed tasks to be performed in the agreed upon Scope of Work with the Client.
