Valu Shred Processing Technology
Valu Shred's unique on site recycling and processing system involves the dismantling, sorting and reducing hardware into it's component parts. Once the hardware has been dismantled and sorted, it is prepped for subsequent recovery. Valu Shred is your partner in making sure all of your electronics have a proper "end of life" home.

Preparation:
All material is received either as lose items or packaged on skids. All material is offloaded into our warehouse where it is identified, sorted and prepped for processing. Hardware is disassembled into it's component parts, packaged with other like materials and readied for the next step in the recycling process.

Shredding:
Valu Shred's onsite shredder is on the cutting edge of the data destruction industry. Our shredder eliminates any possibility of your sensitive/personal information being compromised. The shredder can handle a wide variety of media storage devices, ranging from hard drives to floppies to flash drives. As well, the shredder can be used to destroy patent protected material, such as circuit boards and promotional products. Once processed, product is shredded into tiny pieces and is virtually unrecognizable. Additionally, our shredder is utilized in order to maximize potential material recovery in our ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Material separation:
Ferrous material is separated magnetically from non-ferrous materials, i.e. aluminum, copper, brass, zinc, plastic etc. allowing for recovery and recycling of the "end of life" product.

All raw materials (scrap electronic equipment) are processed, reduced and separated, in preparation for the next recycling process.

Steel is utilized by mills for the manufacture of new steel products. Any remaining shredded metals are smelted and refined off-site, thus ensuring recycling of the various materials, i.e. copper, brass, zinc, etc. Waste Plastic is used in the manufacture of insulation or recycled as a source of energy, to produce plastic lumber, and for the manufacture of noise reduction panels and the like.
