Scrap Metal Shredder
It takes a lot of energy to break down larger pieces of scrap metal, such as a car. Which is why we’ve invested in cutting-edge shredding technology to scale up our scrap metal processing in a way that’s more efficient and sustainable.
Step 1 Receipt & sorting of acceptable materials
Bring us your scrap! You can find a list of what we can shred below! Once items have been approved, we begin to sort the materials.
Step 2 Infeed of material
Sorted materials are then loaded onto the infeed conveyor via crane.
Step 3 Materials go to the hammermill
The infeed conveyor sends material to the hammermill
which shreds the material and sizes it.
Step 4 Material Gets Divided
The material is then divided into two primary material streams:
1. Ferrous Metals – Ferrous materials are cleaned using a cyclone; further sorted for non-conformance and then piled
2. Non-ferrous Metals – Non-ferrous material are sent to the ASR plant for further processing.

Shredding for a better tomorrow
Metal shredding is essential to ongoing consumer consumption of products. Contributing to a circular economy, shredded metals are broken down and recycled to be consumed as raw materials. This helps divert from the landfill and contributes to preservation of the earth’s natural resources.
