Doppstadt (UK) Ltd finalises largest ever order for recycling equipment

Doppstadt (UK) Ltd, the Glasgow-based recycling equipment specialists, are in the final stages of securing the first UK order for a powerful two in one shredder.

removed by an overband magnet. The material is then conveyed into the high

ferrous contamination is removed by a second overband magnet.
