About WCA Waste Corporation
WCA Waste Corporation, through its subsidiaries, provides non-hazardous solid waste collection, transfer, processing, and disposal services in the south and central regions of the United States.
As of December 31, 2009, the company served approximately 346,000 commercial, industrial, and residential collection customers and 5,000 landfill and transfer station customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. It owned and/or operated 25 landfills, 26 collection operations, and 24 transfer stations/materials recovery facilities (MRFs). Additionally, the company operates but do not own three of the transfer stations.
The companys operations consist of the collection, transfer, processing, and disposal of solid waste.
In commercial collection operations, the company supplies its customers with waste containers of various types and sizes. These containers are designed so that they can be lifted mechanically and emptied into a collection truck to be transported to a disposal facility. By using these containers, the company can service most of commercial customers with trucks operated by a single employee. Residential solid waste collection services often are performed under contracts with municipalities. Additionally, the company rents waste containers and provides collection services to construction, demolition and industrial sites. It loads the containers onto its vehicles and transports them with the waste to either a landfill or a transfer station for disposal.
Transfer and Disposal Services
The company, in areas where it conducts collection operations remote from one of its landfills, often pursues the acquisition or development of transfer stations. Transfer stations allow the company to consolidate waste for subsequent transfer in larger loads, thereby making disposal in its otherwise remote landfills economically feasible. The waste is unloaded from the collection trucks and reloaded onto larger transfer trucks for transportation to a landfill for final disposal.
Sales and Marketing
The company targets potential customers of various sizes, from small quantity generators to large companies and municipalities. It is party to contracts with municipalities and other associations and agencies.
In April 2010, WCA Waste Corporation announced that it has began a Landfill-Gas-to-Energy project at the company owned Oak Grove Landfill in Arcadia, Kansas.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a Project Plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as STEP, PESTLE, STEEP, STEEPLE, STEEPLED, etc.) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations;
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislations will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The extended Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions followed by sixth question added to the original concept:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
- Is there any complementary products, government decisions or public perception that can impact business?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to Imitate?
- Organized Properly?
