Paper Shredding Services is the leading on and off-site document and electronic data shredding and recycling company in Scotland. A true Scottish company, who have delivered shredding and recycling services since the year 2000, and worked with hundreds of different business types, both large and small.

Using specialised shredding equipment, whether it’s for document shredding or hard drive shredding, Paper Shredding Services regularly review their requirements for shredding equipment to ensure they are operating at peak efficiency.

To assist their business, Ron Hill (MD) approached Global Recycling, based on the fantastic reputation Shred-Tech has in the market place. Based on a DAF LF55 Chassis and fitted with the tried and tested ST-15H Shredder, an order was placed for an MDS2-18GT Mobile Document Shredder.

This shredder features a cast aluminium shredder design, auger style compactor, bridgeless vibrating hopper, computer controlled operating system with integration of chassis control, and predictive engine idle to reduce emissions and save fuel. The ST-15H shreds up to 2,500 kgs/hr. The shredder boasts a hex shaft with easy to change heat treated and case carburized knives.

All MDS systems come equipped with Shred-Tech’s angled compactor design and walking floor unloading system. Together these features ensure an enormous legal payload of 6,500 kgs and rapid discharge of shredded material in a few minutes.

All Shred-Tech trucks are available in both ‘GT Model’ (featuring automated ground tipper with patented Bin Tunnel technology boasting adjustable kerb height control, and ‘H Model’ (featuring internal shredding compartment with fold down side lift). Ron Hill decided to go down the route of the ‘GT’ version; this enables the bins to be lifted from the ground and tipped into the shredding hopper, without the risk of the material being exposed. Even the operator has no access to the material and this is an added selling point for the ultimate secure on-site shredding service

“We are delighted with our purchase and the truck is performing extremely well.   No sooner had the new truck been delivered, Global Recycling T/A Shred-Tech then installed an ST-35E Static Shredder with in-floor feed conveyor for our off site shredding facility. Again this is performing very well too, with throughputs up to 3000kgs/hour dependant on feed stock” commented Stewart Wilson, General Manager

The aluminium modular design of the ST35 allows for ease of maintenance and repair. Replaceable individual knives keep costs down when it comes to replacement of worn or broken knives. Twin electric motors provide the power to the shredder, with one motor driving each shaft; these can be specified as horizontal or vertical fitment if space is an issue”
