Hey guys, a while back I talked to you guys about recycling shingles, I did a lot more research since then and wanted to update you guys with my progress and see IF THIS IDEA WILL WORK.
A few things to clear up:
*I realized, I'm making money hauling the shingles away from the contractor: NOT the Yard.
*My yard charges me 62$ per ton (with nails) as long as it doesn't have (lots of) rotted wood or plastics; and 42$ for clean shingles.
*They'll pay ME 150$ to pickup shingles from their contractors that work with them.
Here's the basics:
I found 2 hauling companies that can provide me a container/dumpster and deliver it to a residential home than to my yard for about 200-390 (my idea is to have them do it for me since I don't have my own hauling truck and container).
Since I'm ridding the material myself, they 1) won't charge for weight or 2) size of the container. They told me its called a pull and ton fee but idk what that means.
So that means I can charge the Contractors: (just an example) $450 for a 20 yard dumpster and 500$ for a 30 yard, and charge them an additional 72$ per ton (since I'm being charged 62).
So I make about 100-300$ per job.
This is just an idea. I don't own a dumpster or a large truck. I'm like, sub-contracting the haulers service.
Note: here some ppl charge 600$ for a dumper and 80-90$ per ton. Once I explained my prices to the contractors pretty much all of them said Yes!
But I figured, this all looks good on paper, but let me ask you guys, the professionals if I can turn this simple idea into a niche. Tell me if I forgot to mention anything and if this will work.
