Keywords: Tags  auto shredder, GLE Scrap Metal, Nathan Zack, Lisa Gordon

PITTSBURGH — GLE Scrap Metal Inc.’s plan to install an auto shredder in Melvindale, Mich., was unanimously approved by the Melvindale City Council at a Sept. 18 public hearing to reconsider its prior approval of the proposal.

The Warren, Mich.-based scrap metals recycler will pour the concrete and lay the foundation for the 2,500-horsepower auto shredder in the spring, GLE president Nathan Zack told AMM.

The shredder, which will be capable of producing 8,000 gross tons of shredded scrap per month, is expected to be commissioned in June 2014, he said.

Plans to install the equipment hit a snag after the council decided to reconsider its approval of a special use permit for the project (, Sept. 16).
