Our ReMake Lab Shredder is now up and running on site! Now you can come by and recycle your #1 PET bottles yourself with the help of our volunteers. Our shredder has both a hand crank to test your strength and endurance, and a motorized crank that uses an upcycled motor reclaimed from a TIOLI machine to shred the bottles. The shredded material is for use in our extruder that turns it into 3D printer filament. Both LSWDD and Lopez school have 3D printers, and our goal is to provide them with local fully recycled filament for use in creating new and useful items and educational materials. Look for the shredder next time you are on site!
