Does baling your cardboard really save you money?

Updated: Sep 22


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?


400kg each


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?


Yes


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?


Hmmmm...


One more question.. if i gave you back 56 hours labour a week, what could you earn with it?
