Solid & Bulky Waste Shredding

SSI Shredding Systems engineeres and manufactures a variety of low-speed, high-torque shredders for size reduction and recycling of solid, bulky waste of nearly all sizes and materials.

Consumer waste and scrap that is too large to be collected through traditional methods is considered bulky waste. Shredders designed and built by SSI Shredding Systems are integral in the process of breaking down these tough, irregular and oversized materials to prepare them for recycling or thermal treatment. SSI’s patented, low-speed, high-torque technologies provide optimum performance and reliability in processing solid and bulky waste.

Solid & Bulky Waste Shredding Solutions

SSI reducers and shredders are widely used to downsize commingled bulky waste as well as commercial and residential waste streams for volume reduction, to liberate and reclaim recyclables, for composting applications, and to create alternative fuel sources for industry.

Here are some typical system solutions:

MATTRESSES & FURNITURE

MATTRESSES & FURNITURE

Who really wants a used mattress anyway? SSI has shredders installed processing mattresses, sofas and chairs that are collected from consumers when new mattresses or sold, or at garbage transfer stations. Processing systems are used for volume reduction as well as to reclaim marketable metals, wood, foam and other materials.


Thermal Treatment

THERMAL TREATMENT

Some operations incinerate waste for simple destruction of the burning of alternative fuels. Utilizing an SSI shredder prior to incineration greatly improves the combustion and efficiency of the materials.


RDF / MSW / Mixed Waste

RDF / MSW / Mixed Waste

Commingled waste can easily be pre-shredded with PRI-MAX® technology to the point where non combustible items can be separated in a variety of ways ahead of Quad® or Uni-Shear® machines that convert the target materials into usable fuels.


COMPOSTING

COMPOSTING

Many municipalities operate organic waste composting and recycling facilities. Some use shredders ahead of drying technologies, and others employ shredders to downsize mixed waste streams prior to a composting vessel or off gas collection system
