cannabis waste being fed into 3-SHRED monster industrial shredderJWC’s Monster Industrial cannabis shredders are driven by electric motors meaning they are quiet, can be used indoors or out, and transmit zero gas and exhaust fumes. These shredders are powerful low-speed, high-torque, dual-shafted grinders. They easily grind wet or dry material including entire plants, large root balls, soil, plastic pots or other waste. They are a great alternative to wood chippers that are loud, can only be used outside, may get damaged or clogged by rocks and other debris, and can’t handle wet waste.

cannabis wasteCannabis waste disposal laws usually require that plant waste must be rendered unusable and unrecognizable by grinding and incorporating it with other ground materials. The resulting mixture must be at least 51% non-marijuana waste by volume. No matter what you mix the marijuana plant with to make it unusable and unrecognizable (soil, plastic pots, netting, food waste, cardboard, etc.), our shredder can handle it!

Monster Industrial marijuana, cannabis and hemp plant waste shredders have two rows of sharp steel cutters that rotate slowly and with incredibly high torque to turn large troublesome solids into small pieces. The SHRED series are available with hoppers and stands configured to your specific needs. They can handle wet or dry material, shredding it down to meet regulatory requirements.
