Development Approval for Adelaide Shredder

Access Recycling was pleased that our Development Application with Port Adelaide Enfield City Council was approved with no objections received. The development application was gazetted for public consultation for a period of 30 days. That fact there were no objections from businesses, or anyone else in the community, can only be taken as a vote of support for the project. Construction is set to begin in January and the plant commissioned in June. Once operational, more than 4,000 car bodies per month will be recycled in the plant. They will be sourced locally as well as being rail transported interstate using Access Recycling’s own train based in Canberra.

The highly specialised metal shredder, manufactured by Zato, Italy, will have a production capacity of 60,000 tonnes per annum. It will supply crucial clean metal feedstock to Intercast and Forge, thus supporting hundreds of jobs in Adelaide.

The feature pictured in the article is a similar 3,000HP shredder built by Zato in Europe’s largest scrap metal yard, Tata Steel in Sheffield UK.
