SITA UK first company in Europe to order dual mode shredding vehicles


Canadian manufacturer Shred-Tech’s dual mode mobile document shredding vehicles have been bought by SITA UK.

It is the first order in Europe of the vehicles that are capable of shredding up to 1,150kg per hour in high security mode and up to 2,950kg per hour in standard mode. Shred-Tech say this is 1.5 times faster than any other mobile shredder currently available in the UK.


The security of customer’s data will further improve thanks to Shred-Tech’s revolutionary secure bin opening system which does not require the bin to be manually opened before being tipped.

SITA UK head of secure shredding services Jerome Mingaz said: “We understand that for our customers, security is the most important element of our service and we are delighted to be European pioneers of this innovative solution.

“The new fleet of MDX-1GT vehicles will enhance our secure shredding offer and the dual mode shredding services will enable our customers to choose an adequate level of security depending on their business needs.”

The vehicle is distributed by Global Recycling Solutions in the UK.
