Grassroots Recycling has taken a significant leap forward in its commitment to sustainable practices, with the investment into an LRK 1400 shredder from UNTHA UK.
This strategic step underscores Grassroots Recycling’s dedication to enhancing operations and furthering its mission to assist Britain’s farmers and growers in responsibly recycling.
To meet the growing demands of its operations, Grassroots Recycling sought a solution that could handle higher throughput while maintaining reliability and compatibility with existing infrastructure. The LRK1400 shredder from UNTHA UK perfectly addressed these needs, offering a larger machine with increased input capacity, as well as UK-based service and backup capabilities.
This new shredder allows Grassroots Recycling to process an average of 375 kg per hour — a significant enhancement from the company’s previous equipment. An anticipated 4:1 size reduction will see the company free up considerable space within its premises, enabling a greater volume of material to be brought to site and therefore increasing productivity, pace, and profitability long-term.
In addition to the machine purchase, Grassroots Recycling has secured a three-year service plan from UNTHA UK. This package provides direct access to UNTHA’s technical after sales expertise, ensuring on-demand engineering support, preventative maintenance and machine optimisation expertise – extending the shredder’s lifespan, reducing the risk of unplanned downtime and boosting overall ROI.
