Business Case for Horizontal Grinder

  • 1.  Business Case for Horizontal Grinder

    Posted 09-13-2017 09:15 AM
    Hello folks,

    I work for a publicly-owned landfill in eastern Canada. I have been asked to put together a business case for purchase of a horizontal grinder, mainly for processing of wood debris. Can anyone offer any input I can use to put this together.

    In other words I'm wondering how money can be saved (i.e., through increased compaction rates) and revenue can potentially can be generated (ie., sale of mulch, etc.). If anyone can offer some numbers through their experiences, it would be helpful and appreciated.

    Thank you,

    J. Murphy
