Removal of domestic garbage from the private sector.
My aunt lives in a cottage located in the more or less prestigious part of the suburb of Ekaterinburg. And occasionally I come to visit her on my car. And the speech, of course, is not about her hospitality, but about my observations.
Every time we leave for the "city", she asks to put in a trunk a bag or even two. What is it? Garbage! Ordinary domestic garbage , which accumulates from time to time.
To the metal containers, where this garbage is put, we go about 12-15 km and this is the nearest place. Of course, I do not mind, but each time I have to make a small "hook" when traveling to the city center. One must understand Aunt: Well, where to put this rubbish?
So this is the first observation.
The second observation. My parents, being pensioners, as soon as the horticultural season comes, go to the dacha and live there until the last, that is, to the most serious cold. Also live there and neighbors, and to the right, and to the left, and across the road from our site. Also pensioners. They like it there. Clean air, silence, native beds, a sauna, a gazebo. Sometimes I come to visit them on my car for the sake of listed attractions. And, as you may have guessed, they also constantly ask to take with them a couple of bags of rubbish and a bag with empty glass and plastic bottles.
I thought: can I build a business on this?
After sitting for several hours on the Internet, reading advertising newspapers and making several calculations, I came to the conclusion: you can !
And, my dear friends, I would like to share with you!
All I will point out a concrete example and real planned calculations!
I live in Ufa. In our locality, the number of suburban settlements with elite and not quite elite houses is no less than ten (I do not consider garden cooperatives, their great, great number!).
The village of Chamonino. New promising in all plans of the village, with almost new houses and buildings. Distance to the city is 15 km, to the center - 27 km. The number of houses in the first half of the village is 630, the layout of the houses is available.
1) It is necessary to print on one sheet of A5 format advertising about their services. Lay out all the information: all the pluses and superpluses, contact information. Print on an ordinary black and white laser printer, do not hesitate.
Having consulted with a lawyer, we draw up a standard contract for subscriber service for the export of domestic garbage with a volume and weight not exceeding the established values (for example, up to 0.3 cubic meters, weight not exceeding 10 kg), once a week. We print 630 copies of the advertising sheet and the contract (one contract - one sheet, one to the client, the other to us).
The contract should provide that garbage customers should be in sealed plastic bags, located in front of the gate, garbage removal is carried out on Sundays from 15-00 to 18-00.
2) We make a detour around the houses. Communicate with the inhabitants of the village. We offer this service. We guarantee the quality and removal of garbage at a strictly defined frequency: once or twice a week (twice for an increased tariff).
If you want to save time, it is best for this job to hire several students. They are sociable, nosy and always in need of money. Pay for them with the fact: for the concluded contracts.
Some residents will tell you or your employees that an appropriate operation site or partnership is responsible for garbage disposal, that this is included in the monthly payment they pay. Dont be upset. These are your future customers! They are not yet ripe and have not fully understood the reality of being and will come to you later. Politely give them a prepared flyer.
3) So, there are 630 houses.
Of these, 15-20% of their owners will not be at home. Minus 95 houses. Go to them later.
Carefully keep records. In accounting - your reputation!
There are 535 houses left.
40% of them will refuse or will "think" - 214 houses. Do not worry, this is the future market for your services. We are talking about today.
There are 321 houses left. Here are your real customers ! People who soberly assess the situation, their time and are released from the case, which they do not want to deal with.
4) Ask your customers to prepare a special package for garbage in advance, or take up to 15 rubles each. for the bag. Judging by the advertisement, 1 large plastic bag will cost you 9 rubles.
Among the ads, I tried to find an inexpensive classic plastic waste container. But ... it's expensive. The minimum price for one such container is 1500 rubles. If customers want to have such containers at their disposal, then let them buy their own. For us, the main thing is that the garbage is carefully packed in a sealed container, i.е. in a large plastic bag. This facilitates loading and unloading, transportation.
5) Among the newspaper advertisements I found many ads of this nature: the driver of the category "VS" with a personal KAMAZ-55111 (or other truck) is looking for work. I called several, I offered constant compulsory work on Sundays. They are glad that the work is Sunday. It's the same for them - shabashka! 1 hour of their work costs 400-450 rubles. Agreed with the main and just in case with the backup driver. Gasselists miss, a little machine, although ... judge by volume.
6) In the beginning, it is better to pay for your services not high. First you need to firmly enter this market of services, prove yourself. Let people get used to this service. After 6-9 months, it is possible to increase their tariffs. Explain this by rising prices, etc., people are used to inflation and raising various tariffs.
7) How to collect money from customers?
Come to the village on a Saturday or Sunday from 10-00 in the morning and begin to bypass customers, i.e. before Sunday's garbage disposal. Keep a strict accounting! Errors are not allowed! It is desirable to collect money from customers for a month of service for 45 rubles. for export, who does not want, then for a one-time fee a little more expensive - 50 rubles each. It disciplines.
Keep a record in the cash book in the appropriate order, draw up a cash receipt warrant (PKO) to a specific contract, customers on their hands give out the spine to the PKO. Let everything be legal.
If you do not have time, it's best to hire a responsible cashier, a retired woman, preferably from among the residents of this village. Her payment of 500 rubles. for Sunday. Those. for 4.3 days of work per month = 2150 rubles.
She will collect the money and give you all the information in her hands. It is desirable that she does not communicate with workers on garbage disposal, tk. collusion and appropriation are possible. Keep in control.

In my opinion, not bad! A few hours work on the weekend! And this is not the limit. This is an initial profit, then expansion will follow, in this I am absolutely sure. In the future you will take the neighboring village for maintenance, etc. Perhaps a branch of business. Discount your customers if they distribute their garbage and sign it, for example, food waste - take it to the farm, scrap metal - take the metal pickers, polyethylene and plastic to the processors, etc. It's all money. Live money!
When you put this business firmly on its feet, ensure proper control, then you will simply receive a steady steady income. Yes, yes, like those monopolists who are paid for light, for gas, for water, telephone, and ... for you, for the removal of garbage.
