Volvo excavators key to Tervita’s strategy on the road to continued growth in scrap recycling

Stuart Sharpe, Tervita Metals Recycling GM, says his team is gaining fuel efficiency and lowering operating costs as new generations of shears are allowing them to get the same power on 35- and 40-ton machines that used to be achieved with only larger machines.

From above, it looks like a maze created from every type of scrap metal imaginable.
