Shredding bulky waste

Approximately 30 kg bulky waste is produced per capita annually in Germany. Bulky waste is waste that cannot be disposed of as normal residual waste because of its size and condition.

This figure is relatively low in comparison to the quantity of normal household waste produced, but its condition makes bulky waste far more difficult to deal with.

For this purpose, we offer you our powerful single-shaft shredders.

Our bulky waste shredders


characteristics and challenges

Bulky Waste contains many valuable resources that can be liberated and separated from the waste with the proper machine technology.  However, this is only possible if the right shredder is used. 

Bulky Materials are called this because by their very nature, they contain large amounts of co-mingled materials that require an extremely powerful machine to successfully process.  A variety of materials make up this category, so the best units are designed specifically to process any kind of bulky waste. These machines need to be capable of separating valuable recyclables during the shredding process and then collecting them via magnets, air, screens, or by other specialized means.

Before any of this can happen, you must ensure that the machine processing this bulky waste is configured with the right rotor and torque to achieve optimal separation.


The perfect solution

With the XR shredder, we offer you an extreme duty construction that can be customized for the best solution to whatever materials make up your bulky waste. 

Our patented Eco-Drive System is specifically designed for the highest throughput volumes at the lowest possible operating costs.  The rotor design uses cutter and counter-knife designs that enable the XR to outperform all the competition’s models in this difficult waste stream.

Electronic waste (WEEE)

Electronic scrap comprises old electrical and electronic devices, as well as components of these which can no longer be used.

Electronic waste
Residual waste

In 2019, almost 40 million tonnes of household waste were accumulated in Germany alone. This residential waste is collected and amongst other things sent for mechanical-biological waste treatment at the appropriate plants.

Residual waste
Rubber & tyres

Rubber waste, and scrap tyres in particular, are a major problem worldwide. Every year, around one billion used tyres need to be disposed of, with the lion’s share being dumped in landfill sites. 

Rubber & tyres

Due to their varying material structure, mattresses are difficult to shred and/or recycle. Which is why they are often simply thrown away rather than being put to any further profitable use.
