Firms participating in the hazardous waste industry brought in a total of $5 billion in revenue in 2008, according to a new survey by Farkas Berkowitz & Co. Half of that amount was from collection and disposal services, and the remainder was from “adjacent and related services,” the survey says.

“Looking forward, 81 percent of survey participants expect revenues to decrease in 2009, but 67 percent anticipate that they will be able to maintain profit margins,” says a summary of the survey.
