Shredding bulky waste

Approximately 30 kg bulky waste is produced per capita every year in Germany. Bulky waste is waste which cannot be disposed of as normal residual waste due to 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 shredders for bulky waste


Specific characteristics and challenges

Bulky waste contains many different and valuable resources which can be recovered and reintroduced into the raw material cycle through good material preparation and the correct system technology. Prerequisite for this is efficient processing and sorting technology.

Because this type of waste is particularly bulky, and it contains large quantities of extraneous materials, the shredders used have to be extremely powerful. The aim of efficiently processing various waste products is the recovery of secondary raw materials as well as the generation of high-quality substitute fuel for thermal utilisation.

In particular in the case of very different types of waste, a highly individual and above all high performance solution is required.


The perfect solution

With our XR class shredders, we offer you a pre-shredder with the following features:

  • Particularly robust construction

  • Maximum flexibility pre-shredder

  • Design for high throughputs

The cutting unit is extremely resistant to extraneous materials, which can then easily be removed via the service hatch. These characteristics make our shredding machine the top choice for the processing of bulky waste.

Electronic waste (WEEE)

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

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.
