At the beginning of 2016, Chalk River Laboratories (CRL), Ontario/Canada, which is part of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), put into operation a Lindner Urraco 75 DK mobile shredder. The machine was supplied by Waterloo, Ontario-based Recycling Equipment Canada, Lindner America's authorized Canadian dealer. On site at the company's landfill for non-contaminated waste, which is operated by the CNL's Decommissioning & Waste Management division, the shredder is in permanent use crushing wood, plastics and light materials from demolition, renovation and new building work. On the 40 km² site with around 160 buildings, this debris occurs primarily in the form of pallets, construction timber, trees and brush, asphalt, metal containers, plastic pipes and furniture. Apart from significantly reducing the volume of the waste, the Urraco also assumes the task of preparing the wood fraction into an easily compactible bulk product that can be mixed with regular daily cover material and spread over the working face of the landfill at the end of every working day. In this way, the company complies with the regulation to cover the waste collected during the course of a day with a 150 mm thick layer of wood and soil mixture, thus mitigating the need to bring in earth especially for this purpose.
