Newspaper shredder in newspaper recycling
Some waste collection centers directly use hydraulic baling machine to compress waste newspaper into dense bales and then transport to recycling plants for recycling. However, due to the high bulk density of newspaper, normal baling machine cannot well handle newspaper but need a large force baler with special fluffering device. Due to lack of such special baling equipment, some waste collection centers use a shredder to shred newspaper into small and fluffy scraps and then use a very normal baler to compress it into dense bales.
Old newspaper shreds can be used as stuff material. For delivering fragile products such as ceramics, cosmetics, electronics, the package must be properly filled so as to ensure the product will not rub, bump, shift or even break during transportation. Waste newspaper shreds is good filling material for this purpose.
Waste newspaper after shredding can also be used as bedding material for animals, as paper shreds is good at absorbing animals’ urine and odor.
Moreover, newspaper shreds make fine mulch for gardens and landscape. It is very effective at maintaining soil temperature, preventing the weeds from growing, conserving water, and adding organic material. It is an easy and inexpensive method of mulch compared to other types of mulch.
Shredded newspaper is also a good resource to repair furniture. For example, when wood furniture or wood floor is cracked, you can use newspaper shreds mixed with some alums, boiled in water until it becomes pasty, then embed them into the crack. After it is dry, it will become very firm.
