Tracking the Price of your Waste

 

Waste like other commodities has fluctuating prices.  Therefore, to make your waste as profitable as possible it is important to track the price on at least a monthly basis.  This not only ensures you can keep tabs on your waste partner prices with accuracy, but it also means you get fewer surprises when you are offered less for your waste than you were the previous month.

In this post, we look at how you can keep tabs on your waste, and how you can maximise the profit.

The Waste Stock Market

Like other commodities, a number of factors come into play to determine price.  Supply and demand, economic and political events, interest rates, inflation, and deflation all play their part.  This is only the tip of the iceberg too, as not many of us can say we understand how the stock market works.

As you can see with all these forces influencing price, the price of your waste will change over time.

Monitor Prices Offered – If you notice a steady decline in the prices offered for your waste, this is either a sign that the waste couriers are driving down costs, or the waste price is falling.  If you have kept tabs regularly, you will easily be able to determine which factor applies.  If you have not, approach other waste couriers to establish a going rate for your waste.

Speak to Other Businesses – If you have not monitored your waste prices for some time, you may know other businesses that have.  Why not ask them for the going rate?

Speak to Official Sources- There are plenty of official bodies that can be easily found online.  Why not sign up to a few organisations and ask them for prices, and indeed information and assistance?

If you have gone to the trouble to make your business green, it seems a shame not to maximise your profits and reduce costs from doing so.  As you can tell, running checks in the press, and contacting this guy and that guy to get pricing information is quite time consuming.  Not something you want to do when you h
