The UK-based company which designs, supplies and installs turnkey recycling solutions to the public and private sector to customers in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Africa and further afield, said users of its flexible new Shredder model SRS5000 CT would instantly benefits from its self-cleaning twin shafts, a large capacity chamber, central lubrication and tilting hopper which can be operated by radio remote control under extreme conditions.

EMS Waste RecyclingThe shredder, which measures 7.9 metres in length, 2.5 metres in width and with a height of 3.2 metres, can process waste material at an impressive rate of up to 50 tonnes per hour.
