Throughout our almost 50 years of existence, Allegheny Shredders has created custom equipment for all types of organizations throughout the world. With that type of experience, Allegheny has created the perfect shredding system for non-profit workshops! These systems not only allow you to create additional jobs for your clients, but also build a profitable business for your organization to add onto your existing services.

There are 2 different types of shredding systems that Allegheny has put in countless non-profit organizations throughout the country. The first creates a team atmosphere for your clients, allowing them to work together on a sorting line to separate different grades of paper before it gets to a cardboard Gaylord that is then tipped into an Allegheny 20-350C shredder. The shredded paper is then conveyed into a baler, which will allow you to create mill sized bales that can be sold for a profit!

The other shredding system contains multiple Allegheny J-series office paper shredders, along with a baler and a 16-series shredder. These easy to use j-series shredders are set up on a conveyor, allowing each client to have their own individual work station and to work at their own pace. The shredded paper is then conveyed into a baler, which once again will allow you to make bales that can be resold to paper brokers for profit.

Even though Allegheny has 2 plans for shredding systems already in place, we are always open for suggestions on how to make operations even better. If you have any ideas for a unique custom system to fit your non-profit facility, please don’t hesitate to give us a call! We are happy to help you find the best way possible to make your business successful!
