SWITCH TO JCB ELECTRIC SHREDS EMISSIONS
Shred Station has switched from diesel to electric for its brand-new fleet of JCB materials handling machines.
Shred Station is replacing six of its diesel powered JCB Teletruks with six new electric models. By making the switch the company estimates it will save around 62,000 litres of diesel per year.
The leading shredding services provider has taken delivery of three of the JCB 30-19E electric Teletruks models at its Norwich site. The performance was so impressive that it immediately bought three more.
Supplied by dealer Watling JCB, the JCB 30-19E electric Teletruks will be used to transport bales of shredded paper around Shred Station’s depot, stack them safely and maximise depot space. They are also responsible for loading the bales onto trucks ready to be transported to Shred Station’s recycling facilities.
Shred Station is the world’s largest independent shredding service provider and has been destroying confidential materials for over 14 years. While the company mostly destroys paper-based materials, other services include textile shredding, hard drive and media storage destruction, product shredding and much more.
