Waste Recovery: Spotlight on Electronics Recycling

The BGL Environmental Services Insider is a quarterly newsletter addressing capital markets and mergers & acquisitions activity, financial and operating performance of certain publicly-traded companies, and trends within the environmental services industry.

In this edition, we continue our coverage of waste recovery with a spotlight on electronics recycling, an industry exhibiting strong secular growth driven by increasing volumes, favorable legislation, and green initiatives favoring responsible recycling. We feature an interview with executives at ECS Refining, LLC and private equity partner ZS Fund L.P., who share their insights on opportunities and challenges facing the industry and the company’s growth plans.

Also inside we highlight recent news in oil collections and rerefining, a sector seeing continuing consolidation, evidenced by the announcement of a major acquisition in used oil collections in Q1 ’12.
