Storm debris chews up shredder

Email

Red Wing City Council voted unanimously to authorize the purchase of a new shredder to fulfil a refuse-derived fuel contract with Xcel Energy at a meeting Monday, just days after the city's existing wood shredder went kaput.

Public Works Director Rick Moskwa told council members that a new shredder with extended warranty -- with a total cost of $498,000 after trading in the city's now defunct shredder -- would be more fiscally responsible than purchasing a cheaper, used shredder.
