Bill Gates is buying trash - should you?

Peter Lynch once said that the best companies to invest in are the ones who are doing something dull and not something popular. Bill Gates - founder of Microsoft - has listened to Peter Lynch and has invested in companies involved in the trash business:
  • Ecolab - provides cleaning and sanitizing products and programs, as well as pest elimination, maintenance, and repair services primarily to customers in the foodservice, food and beverage processing, hospitality, etc.
  • Republic Services - a leading provider of solid waste collection, transfer, recycling and disposal services.
