How others have improved profitability and reduced risks?
Bulky waste might be too large to be recycled conventionally, but it is far too valuable to be left unutilized. Objects that are awkwardly sized and heavy – for example furniture, televisions, kitchen appliances, washing machines or bathroom fittings, are traditionally classified as bulky waste.
Reducing the size of bulky waste makes the waste easier to process resulting in increased recycling efficiency.
Shredding bulky materials cuts down on transportation costs.
Homogenous grain size enables faster and more accurate screening and sorting.

Recycling bulky waste of variable sizes and weights
Bulky waste is difficult to handle by nature. Large devices and appliances, however, also contain large amounts of useful materials for recovery and sell on.
Many difficulties when processing bulky waste come down to size. Large objects cause headaches in transportation, and moving them around is often expensive.
Bulky waste can be processed in the same way as other waste types if it is first reduced to the correct grain size.
Pre-shredding bulky waste enables loading the material compactly, which cuts transportation costs. With a smaller gain size, the waste is more efficient to process: screening and sorting can be done more accurately, and different materials are faster in their own stacks.
