Scrap tire haulers are in a “high revenue” and “high expense” industry. Having spent 12 years in the hauling business myself, I have a special appreciation for one of the biggest expenses…Tipping Fees. If you’re a hauler, you’ll probably agree that “painful” is the best way to describe this biggest expense we have.
When I started as a hauler with my 3 partners…us and a truck in 1999, tipping fees at the local county facility were as low as $40/ ton. Now we see tipping fees in excess of $90/ ton! With fuel rates going through the roof and pressure from competition to lower prices, it’s a challenge to say the least.
My partners and I recognized that scrap tire processing could be done more efficiently…cutting out some of the middle men in the process and still making a profit. We started Tire Recyclers to make money, no doubt, but because we have an efficient business model, we can pass on significant savings to our hauler friends on tipping fees.
