In this case, your job is to collect old tires from different places and deposit them in your godown or call factory. After that, cut the tire into small pieces, separate the different parts and keep the goods ready. When bulk goods are collected (as quintals or tons) then sell directly to the seller.

The items are fuel oil, steel wares and carbon. Then these items or components will be delivered to their special factories. Also fuel well you can sell to particular company and steel war you can sell to steel company. Carbon can be sold to plastic or rubber companies. This entire process is the work of Kraft Tire Recycling Unit. To do this you need to invest a lot of money initially, because a lot of machinery has to be purchased.


How much investment is required?

1. If you only want to collect old tires and cut them into small pieces and sell them to the recycling unit, then you can start the business with an investment of Rs 10,000 to 25,000. First you will build a factory or godown near your home. Roughly 200 square feet to 300 square feet of space, you can build a factory or godown. A lot of space is required for cutting tires and making small scraps.

After that, buy old tires at a low price from where car tires are changed, and cut them into small scraps with different cutting tools. Contact blacksmiths to craft tire cutters.

Roughly, if you sell 1 ton of scrap tires, the maximum cost used to be Rs 2,000 to 4,000.
