What are the steps to starting a plastic recycling business?
I want to start a business of plastic recycling but I don't know how to start. I searched the internet to get some knowledge about the business but I still need to know more about it and I want to know the exact procedure for starting it. I am from India, any guidance on this would be much appreciated.
What Isaac has said + I would suggest you start with information on Youtube. Here's a great article on how to start a plastic recycling business: https://www.norcalcompactors.net/start-plastic-recycling-manufacturing-business/
The article covers important areas like how to register your business, TIN, etc.
This youtube video is also a good source of different ideas about how to start: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnZe-P-9D0w
This is not a business (nor any other business) you can learn by reading about it. The best advice anyone could give is: Start working for a plastic recycling company for a few months. Learn the ins and outs of the business.
Learn its processes, learn who the key players in the industry are (they will eventually become your competitors). So the more you know about your competitor, the better hand you have.
It will also enable you to get to know who the clients are - make some research about them.
Learn about the pricing, the process - you'll find out what's missing in this industry and make it better than your competitors.
If you go for it, let us know how it went in a few months - you'll be surprised how much you'll learn. I'd love to hear it myself.
