Waste collection in itself adds value to humanity and can be done as a business and make millions of dollars. With the right mindsets toward some information that regularly come our ways on a daily basis, if we can have them sifted properly and with our ego dropped by the side, the rate of poverty being encountered will be reduced to the barest minimum.
While Nigeria can boast of various self made millionaires, there are also millions of self made poverty stricken members of the society.
The problem with many people in Nigeria is pride and egotism which at times eats deep into our senses of belonging and deprive us chances of doing businesses that can actually bring us good money.
While different companies and offices are doing what they deem fit for the success of their businesses, employing in hundreds and sacking en mass, most of us are still busy gathering up our CVs and certificates and continuing without let up in search of office jobs whereas there are better paying jobs waiting to be done.
Identify The Opportunity In Waste Collection
Probably you are not aware that you can make over N500,000 a month supplying waste polythene nylons to waste recycling factories within the Nigerian states? The best part is that you can start waste collection business with no capital.
Instead of burning those pure water nylons and rubber containers or throwing some of the metals away, gathering them up and sourcing them out to recycling plants could make us millions of naira. Our attitude has to change.
There was an article in one of the daily Newspapers that talks about a recycling company in Nigeria that made about $65million from exporting metallic waste to oversea countries where the metals are used for manufacturing of cars, radiators, ship engines and so on.
Supplying of waste polythene and other wastes for recycling is a lucrative business, try it today and you will have good story to tell. The business is so lucrative that even government, companies and other recycling outfits would like to partner with you.
It is both fun and a caring. You make money by removing the pieces of irons that may hurt people within the environment, I don’t look at the money I make from the business as a salary or wages, I considers it as God’s blessings to me for doing what benefits people.
The Benefit of Waste Collection Business
The benefits of starting waste collection business goes beyond personal to even adding values to the GDP and the economic growth of your country.
You can start by directly gathering the following items in any location of your choice and have it grown to bigger quantity. Things like: Shopping bags, laundry bags, pure water sachets, yogurt wrappers, soft poly bags, hospital drip bags, pop corn wrapper, bread wrapper, cellophane, etc.
Money is good and without it, doing anything could be near to impossible but money without the proper information lasts only for a while. You stand to make it continually in the waste collection business and would be helping others with your knowledge.
You can pay some children to be gathering all kinds of wastes for you. Continue doing it until it becomes big, take it to a recycling company and be ready to count your cash as it would be measured and paid for.
The Profit Potential In Waste Collection Business
Just position yourself as a waste collector ranging from polythene bags of different sources and have them supplied to a waste collection center operator who then process and shifts them to the company that does the recycling.
You can make between N50,000 to N500,000 monthly, doing this business. This is the breakdown:
A kilo of polythene sells between N45-N55.
If you can supply just 100kg per day for 25 days in a month that is N50 x 100 kilos x 25 days = N125,000, that is if you are dealing with just polythene alone, but if you are into metal, your money goes up.
In all these, just as I have mentioned earlier, there is no start up capital needed except transportation if there is no recycling firm near you. Nigerians, there are more business for all us to get busy with and stop depending on others or waiting for the government to do things for us when we can actually do things on our own and pay the government with our surplus through tax.
