  • "Investing in High-Security Double Shredding Lorry to ensure Customer Compliance in a World of increased Security Risks"

    Perrys Recycling, which was founded in 1962, specialised in recycling & off site shredding with one depot in Baltonsborough, Somerset processing around 175 tonnes per week. The family business has grown organically in line with customer needs for legal and environmental compliance. We now operate four shredding & baling depots in the South West – Yeovil (Marston Magna HQ), Bridgwater, Bristol and Bideford. With a fleet of over 30 vehicles servicing customers throughout South West processing over 1200 tonnes per week for shredding & recycling and recovery with zero waste to landfill solutions.

    Chris Perry (Managing Director) explains “We have expanded our offsite & onsite shredding services in line with customer’s demands, legal compliance with the Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information Act, Health and Social Care Act and Human Rights Act. As well as the increases in commercial fraud and growth in industrial cyber-crime, influencing the way businesses manage information governance. This has become a priority with customers who want a choice of either onsite & offsite services approved to BSEN15713 and high security CPNi information destruction standards.

    We have operated three mobile onsite shredding lorries to BSEN15713 (level 3 standards), servicing customers in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and South Gloucester. We are also a shareholder member of The Shredding Alliance Limited, providing national service for customers with multiple sites and a central point of contact, invoicing and regular management information. Giving customers the choice or regional or national service contracts.

    In order to keep up with the demands of large volume clearances and regular scheduled collections. As well as ever evolving shredding standards such as the new GSC (Government Security Classifications), CPNi (Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure) high destruction standards and the future PAS7010 standards we have invested in a fourth mobile shredding lorry.

    The new Shred-Tech MDX2 mobile shredding vehicle has a high throughput of 3 tonnes per hour, with the ability to switch into high-security mode (BSEN15713 level 6/7, DIN P4) when required for customers needing to demonstrate legal compliance to these new regulations.

    Global Recycling UK who are agents for Shred Tech are the market leaders in mobile double shredding technology and after much research we felt that the MDX2 vehicle provided the best throughput in standard mode and flexibility to switch to high-security on the same round, for customers who are having to comply with evolving security standards influencing the NHS, Police, Pharmaceutical Industries, Government Authorities, Ministry of Defence and Nuclear Facilities.

    This investment completes the range of onsite and offsite shredding options for customers throughout the South West wanting to ensure Legal and Environmental compliance in a world of increased security risks.


  • "Pulp Recycling Ltd"

    Pulp have taken delivery of their 3rd Shred-Tech MDX-1 Mobile Document Shredder.

    The only mobile shredder that can go from standard shred to high security shred within 4 seconds at the push of a button.


  • "Paper Shredding Services"

    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”


  • "Forging Ahead"

    Our customer Forge Recycling are a family owned, fast growing Waste and Recycling company based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

    Forge were looking to find a refuse collection vehicle manufacturer that would give them reliable operation, longevity of service and an affordable solution.  With the package Van Schijndel / Global Recycling Solutions provided, we met every criteria.

    When dealing in the trade waste sector it is essential that a vehicle can give maximum efficiency due to the competitive and fluctuating nature of the market.  In addition, downtime is not an option for operators, so the total package that Forge were offered was compelling for them – small operators like this do not receive such personal attention from the larger manufacturers and we can give that to them, no matter how small or large.

    The simple and elegant operation of the Van Schijndel VSA2 has given Forge the edge over their competition and we look forward to a long relationship with Harvey Mills and the team.”

    “Peter Banks, Managing Director commented – “We are thrilled to have Harvey and the team at Forge as new owners of the Van Schijndel VSA2 refuse vehicle.  This robust and extremely practical RCV is perfect for the private operator like Forge, where reliability, ease of operation and longevity of service are key to their success. To work with a company with the experience and ambition that Harvey Mills and the Forge team have is the perfect way to show off the VSA2 to a UK market hungry for a new face in this sector”

  • "Game Changer"

    Pulp was founded in 2004, beginning with one on-site shredding truck. The company has grown organically over the past 11 years and now offers an all-Ireland confidential shredding service with both on-site and off-site options. They operate their own baling facility also. Recently, the company decided to purchase a new on-site shredding vehicle and chose the Shred Tech MDX-1 as their preferred model.

    General Manager, Brian Young, explains why:

    “The vast majority of our growth in the past 4 years had been in our off-site shredding service. This was partly due to the fact that customers were looking for the most cost effective method to have their secure data destroyed; partly due to the fact that we developed an innovative method of off-site shredding which guarantees absolute security. Also during this time, we had managed to increase efficiencies within our on-site shredding fleet so were not in a position to purchase a new on-site shredding vehicle for some time. However, we were always aware that our fleet would need updating at some stage, so we had kept ourselves informed of developments in the market place.

    I was very aware of the MDX-1 model through conversations with Global Recycling/Shred-Tech at NAID conferences etc., and I believed it to be a ‘game-changer’ in relation to the massively increased throughput as well as the ability to shred at EN15713 Level 6 at the click of a button. I had always asked other (mostly UK based) shredding operators what their experience was with this model and their feedback couldn’t have been more positive. Therefore, when we began seeing an increase in our on-site business, we knew the time was right to purchase a new vehicle.

    We did a lot of investigating to see what else was available, but in truth the next closest option was the MDS-2 also supplied by Shred-Tech.  However, we felt that the option to shred to Level 6 was too good to pass by. Therefore, we made the decision to place the order.

    I couldn’t compliment the Global Recycling/Shred-Tech team enough. They did everything to ensure the vehicle was delivered ahead of schedule and all aspects were taken care of. The timing couldn’t have been better as the paint had barely dried before we had it in operation! The team of operators we have using the truck are two of our most experienced and they can’t get over the speed and ease of use at which it operates. It has greatly increased the amount of work we can get through in one day.

    The future is extremely bright for us here in PULP now, as we are having conversations with existing and potential clients about our ability to shred to such a high standard. It has also given us some much needed capacity in our fleet, enabling preventative maintenance.  However, our sales team are busy filling it!”.

  • "Datarec AG"

    We have been considering entering the mobile data destruction market for some time and have had discussions with a number of suppliers, as it was felt by our company that we needed to investigate the suppliers fully.

    After careful consideration and due diligence, our preferred choice was to approach Shred-Tech and have a look at the MDX-1GT High Security mobile shredding unit.

    Datarec is a quality brand for service and commitment, and at the forefront of the recycling industry here in Switzerland we have many prestigious accounts.  We felt that the Shred-Tech MDX-1 would suit our needs and reflect our companies profile perfectly.

    We made an initial inquiry in August 2013 regarding the MDX-1GT and from Datarec’s point of view this research was very necessary (and we found John Giusso accommodating and very helpful).  We also wanted to meet the team behind our project and also bring our technicians over from Switzerland to view the production facility and also check that we would have confidence in Shred-Tech to deliver a unit to our exacting specifications.

    A visit was arranged and we met with the whole team.  Following on from these discussions and from meeting the people behind the build, we felt sure that all our work and diligence was worthwhile.

    Trials were organised for our larger bins, and we received a video and an assessment of the trial.  This also illustrated their commitment and helped give us the confidence that they were the best in the market. After this we placed an order for an MDX-1GT based on the Daf LF55 with the Euro 6 engine and Allison 3000 fully automatic gear box.

    The truck was delivered into our facility in Zurich after homologation on 3rd of June 2015. We are extremely pleased with our addition to the Datarec fleet. John Giusso spent two days training our dedicated team and accompanied the truck on its first day of operation

    The truck has fully justified our extensive and exhaustive research. The quality of the build the equipment and service we have received during this project has been first class. We at Datarec pride ourselves on our professionalism and quality of service to our customer base. We feel that the Shred-Tech MDX-1GT fits into our brand and gives us the ability to supply data destruction services that our clients want and expect to their high and exacting specifications.

    We at Datarec would like to put on record our sincere thanks to John and all the team at Shred-Tech for delivering this project to our exacting specifications, quality and commitment to detail.

  • "Cross Cut Treecare Specialists"

    We are delighted to have now delivered  a brand new Bandit 1590 Track Chipper  to Crosscut Tree Care Specialists based in Ireland.  Shane Kearns (owner) commented that reducing conifers by 30ft was a three day job with his old chipper, but with the Bandit 1590 track chipper, the job can be done in a day!!

    This chipper has a 20.5″x 19.75″ opening and is powered by a 173hp motor.

    The machine is fully radio remote control and is a fine example of Bandit’s quality machinery.

  • "PF Lynch, Alfreton"

    A busy start to the week saw the delivery of our 12″ Bandit 990 Track to PF Lynch in Alfreton.

    John Lynch was in the market for a tracked chipper and decided to opt for our Bandit 990xp drum chipper. This particular model is fitted with two speed rubber tracks, radio remote control and winch kit.

    The chipper is off to Wales straight away to munch its way through a large pile of poplar.

  • "CPH Plant Hire Ltd"

  • "Bandit 2550XP sold to Stumpbusters UK Ltd"

    We are doing evermore business with our comprehensive range of stump grinders and today saw the delivery of a Bandit 2550XP Stump Grinder.   Chris Gregory has been grinding stumps with Stumpbusters for well over 20 years now and there is not much he doesn’t know about the industry and the machines on offer, so it was great joy when Chris decided Bandit was the choice for him.
