Taskmaster® industrial solid waste shredders play a major role at recycling facilities and recycling industries that process heavy loads of material for reuse. The recycling industry has found many uses for shredders such as shredding tires for the recovery of rubber. This recycled rubber is found in many applications and products including hot melt asphalt, guard rails, basketball courts, playgrounds, and shoe products.
The rubber is also used in civil engineering practices for the sub-grade insulation of roads, backfilling, and for fuel as “Tire Derived Fuel”. Scrap wood is shredded for recycling and used for the manufacture of many types of wood products such as particle board and paper. Plastic bottles are recycled into PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic chips for the production of new bottles and many other plastic products.
