Really cool video one of our employees sent us tonight that shows the downstream of the shredding process. The shredder recovers 250,000 pounds of aluminum and copper per day out the 3,000 plus tons of automobiles/ tin that we shred everyday 7 days a week!!!! In the old days shredders only recovered the iron and the rest of the materials sadly went to the landfill. Thank god for this amazing technology !!!!
