In case all the missing copper didn’t tip you off, scrap metal is in exceptionally high demand these days. To help meet that demand, End-of-Life vehicles are broken down into their base materials for easier recycling by a car shredder so gigantic it isn’t measured in tons but rather acres.
You don’t have to chuck your $US500 Eames bin (into another bin?) when you purchase a new shredder, if it’s Takumi’s shredder bridge. Placed over any receptacle, the battery-powered shredder is perfect for small offices. [Takumi via DesignBoom]
