Sims Recycling Solutions’ shredding and recycling equipment scheduled to appear in upcoming episode

Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, is scheduled to appear on an upcoming episode of a new show airing on the Science Channel called, “Mega Shredders”. The episode featuring Sims Recycling Solutions is titled “Heavy Metal Shredder,” and is scheduled for Thursday, November 7 at 8:30 p.m. EST.

The episode to include Sims Recycling Solutions will show the purchase of a custom new shredder. This new equipment needs to be twice as powerful as the previous equipment, and this aggressive requirement created some challenges along the way.

“This new show will provide viewers with an inside look at some of the obstacles we had to work through during the installation of our new shredding equipment,” stated Rafael Reveles, engineering and technical director for Sims Recycling Solutions. “In addition, I think it is a great way to show how much additional shredding power we needed to continue efficiently staying on top of the growing demand of e-waste.

Reveles continues, “As the fastest-growing waste stream in America, demand for e-waste recycling has continued to increase, Sims has remained committed to providing the most secure, efficient, and environmentally responsible methods of disposal for our customers”.

Similar to that shown on “Mega Shredders”, was the installation that took place at Sims’ Roseville, Calif. facility. This machinery replaced equipment originally installed in the mid-1990s and was upgraded in response to the growing demand for electronics recycling services.
