We Shred The World

Lakeside Auto Recyclers uses the Hammel "Red Giant" Shredder, one of the biggest, most powerful shredders out there. Equipped with a 710 HP engine, it handles the toughest materials, including whole cars, which is shreds in under five minutes. The machine itself weighs 45 tons.

Watch a Car Disappear in Less Than 5 Minutes

How We Shred Junk Cars

  • First, the Lakeside staff salvage any interior pieces that can be reused for auto parts.
  • Next, the car is drained of all fluids, and all lines are emptied.
  • Any potentially dangerous materials are removed, including the battery, car parts that contain mercury, and the airbags (which contain sodium azide).
  • After the junk car is stripped, it goes into our shredder to be crushed into tiny pieces, which are sorted for reuse or disposal.
  • Any scrap metal is caught by powerful magnets and sorted by type, which can be melted down and reused. We dispose of any non-metal waste or "fluff."
