Special Waste

Reduce the complexity and expense of your auto shredder fluff disposal


Rely on us for assistance with compliant auto shredder fluff (or auto shredder residue) disposal
When salvageable materials such as steel, copper, aluminum and rubber are extracted from your large bulky discarded items, 25% to 30% of the item's original weight remains as auto shredder fluff residue (fabric, coatings, insulation and plastics). Auto shredder waste must be tested and disposed of according to federal, state and local regulations. We help you safely manage this material in a compliant and economical manner.
