Our estimate for the Collection segment’s revenues is pegged at $2.53 billion, indicating a 5.3% rise from the fourth-quarter 2022 reported figure. This is likely to have been driven by benefits from the acquisitions of solid waste companies.

Our estimate for Landfill revenues is pegged at $415.1 million, implying an 8.7% increase from the year-ago reported figure. An expected increase in special waste solid waste, construction and demolition volumes is likely to have driven the rise. Our estimate for Transfer revenues is pegged at $191 million, suggesting 6.9% growth from the year-ago reported figure.

We expect environmental solutions revenues of $413 million, indicating a 1.1% decrease from the year-ago reported figure.

Our estimate for the fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA is pegged at $1.03 billion, implying 7.7% growth from the year-ago reported figure. The EBITDA margin is expected to be 27.4%, suggesting a rise of 30 basis points from the year-ago reported margin.

The consensus estimate for earnings per share is pegged at $1.28, up 13.27% from the year-ago actual. The increase can be attributed to proper pricing to earn appropriate returns.
