Interco Recycles Industrial Shredders

Over time industrial shredders will begin to break down and will need to be replaced. Fortunately, recycling with Interco is a profitable alternative to disposing of decommissioned shredders in a landfill. When industrial shredders are obtained, Interco uses various separation, sorting, and processing techniques to obtain the highest scrap metal value for the shredder parts. Recyclable components found in shredders include wires, circuit boards, electric motors, and more. Nonferrous metals such as copper, brass, and aluminum, are obtained and then packaged into smelter or shredder ready materials.

Interco packages these scrap metals into boxes or bales for storage and easy transport to shredding companies. Since 1996, the company has developed and expanded across the country. Delivery, pickup, full truckload, and LTL services are available. These services include proper documentation and tracking of all processed materials.

Interco Provides Shredder Ready Materials

Interco specializes in producing shredder ready materials for industrial shredders. The company processes over 20 million pounds of material per month. Multiple facilities and techniques increase the value of the scrap metals sold to shredders:

  • Dust Separation Plant
  • Metallic Powder Plant
  • Battery Processing Plant
  • E-scrap Separation Line
  • Mechanical Separation Techniques
  • Magnetic Separation Techniques
  • Hand Separation Techniques
  • Pyrometallurgical Treatments
  • Shredding and Pre-Shredding Processes

Industrial shredders require a reliable source of high-quality materials. The commercial trading department at Interco has established contracts with suppliers and end consumers around the globe. Most shredding facilities require inbound loads weigh at least 40,000 pounds. Many recycling companies cannot generate this much, but Interco can by using contracting partners. Interco also processes over 50 mixed loads of materials per day – each load containing up to 50 items. The company can sort and store large amounts of scrap at the Interco facility. Therefore, shredders rely on Interco to provide a recurring stream of material. These contracts allow Interco to pay higher prices than other recycling companies who must search for an end consumer.

The staff at Interco has over 150 years of combined experience in sorting and grading nonferrous metals. Over 100 staff members and grading experts are dedicated to increase the scrap value for end clients. In other words, these experts ensure that shredding companies receive only the highest quality of scrap metals. The Interco staff also ensures that industrial shredders are only receiving the expected metals. Other materials can be harmful to the recycling process. For example, staff at Interco take care to remove all batteries from removable electronics prior to shredding. Shredded batteries can be dangerous for both the environment and human health.
