Waste removal is an industry that isn’t all that glamorous. Yet when some of the top financial institutions in the world are the largest holders of these stocks, there’s a good reason for it and you’d better pay attention.

The VanEck Environmental Services ETF EVX tracks the performance of companies involved in waste collection, transfer and disposal services, recycling, soil remediation, wastewater management and environmental consulting services. EVX has outperformed the major indices this year with a return of nearly 27%.

The three waste removal firms we will discuss below are the top three constituents in EVX, garnering nearly 30% of the ETF’s total holdings. Volatility has been the name of the game over the past few weeks for the general market, but all three of these companies are still trading within just a few percent of their respective 52-week highs.

Stocks that hold up well through market corrections tend to lead when the indices resume their uptrends. Let’s take a more in-depth look at these three waste removal companies that are showing strength this year.

Republic Services, Inc. (RSG)
