Metso in the waste recycling industry

Why recycling? Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important for the natural environment and people. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.

Waste recycling

The amount of waste we create is constantly increasing because:
• Increasing wealth means that people are buying more products and ultimately creating more waste
• Increasing population means that there are more people on the planet to create waste
• New packaging and technological products are being developed, many of these products contain materials that are not biodegradable
• New lifestyle changes, such as eating fast food, means that we create additional waste that isn’t biodegradable

Metso Waste Recycling has a long tradition of designing and manufacturing industrial components and equipment. We offer both Pre- and FineShredder.

General characteristics for PreShredders

PreShredders are available in stationary or mobile models, powered by an electro-hydraulic or diesel-hydraulic power unit, and grain size depends on the number of knives.

General characteristics for FineShredders
The modular design of these machine means the knife configuration can be chosen to suit customers’ needs. The unique design of the cutting area ensures minimal friction on the shaft.

As expected from a market leader, our exceptional customer service is available around the clock, every day of the year.

How do you ensure that your investment will meet all capacity and grain size requirements?

Experience has shown that the best way to provide you with really useful information about what a Metso shredder can do for your operations is an onsite demonstration using mobile units operated by our own personnel.

Our aim is to provide you with proof of our shredders' performance and efficiency while giving you a unique opportunity to observe how our shredder works with your particular type of waste.
