Cardboard baling saves you money right?
That’s right. We’re getting paid £10pt for our bales and we’re saving £125pt disposal
That’s good…how many bales do you make per day?
2 bales every day
And they weigh?
So 800kg per day, 7 days a week?
Yes, 5.6t per week
So that saves you £700 and earns you £56 a week…how much labour do you use to do that?
8 hours a day
56 hours a week then?
At what rate per hour?
£15 in the week, £22.50 at the weekend
So 40 hours at £15 is £600 and 16 at £22.50 is £360…that’s £960 a week. What about the baler rental?
£50 a week
£1,010 a week then…where’s the saving?
One more question…if I gave you back 56 hours labour a week, what could you earn with it?
