How much does shredding one tonne of tyres cost?

Posted on August 03, 2012 By Mirja Yli-Erkkilä

This question should be the number one priority on your list. The waste fraction may differ, but knowing the costs of your shredding operations is crucial when it comes to creating a profitable waste shredding business.

Generally speaking, the costs can be divided into

  1. Machinery acquisition costs
  2. Fuel expenses
  3. Maintenance costs
  4. Operator wages

I'm sure that you know exactly how much you have paid for your machinery and you have a good idea of how much an operator costs per hour. We also know the fuel price and typical maintenance costs.


But do you know how much it costs to shred one tonne of tyres? You could probably figure it out with some advanced maths, but hey, do you really want to spend your time doing sums with a pencil and paper (or Excel)? What if you constantly had that information at your fingertips?
