Plot Synopsis

MEGA SHREDDERS is a half-hour reality series that follows the maverick engineers and master tradesmen of Shredding Systems Inc. (SSI), a company that custom builds and fixes shredders that destroy anything from boats and bulldozers to photo copiers and hard drives. SSI makes industrial shredders in the most extreme environments imaginable -- each one tailored to the job at hand, designed to cut through anything other companies can't get rid of. This series follows the grinding gears, metal-crushing, against-the-clock pressure as the SSI team navigates each tough new assignment. Each shredder is a custom work of engineering art -- a hulking million-dollar piece of machinery taller than a house, weighing close to 50 tons, with dozens of huge blades designed to shred anything it can get its claws on, and ripping through its own weight in material on a daily basis. Each 30-minute episode follows the SSI team as they complete a job for one client, including: a Hollywood company that needs to have a large volume of adult magazines shredded; the largest urban mining company in the world, which is looking for a brand new shredder with twice the capacity of its current one; a shred plant in New Jersey that is brimming with debris and fallout from Hurricane Sandy; and many more companies that need help shredding objects. The SSI team includes: 'Shred Whisperer' Lee Sage, who can fix any shredder on the fritz; engineering wizard Bob McLeod; master installer Brillo Blakely; field tech Auguie Henry; big boss Tom Garnier; crusher king Dave Miller; and best friends and competitive rivals on the build shop floor, Chris Schuett and Jon Allen. Four months after Discovery Canada aired the world premiere of this series, with SHRED! as the show's title, Science Channel aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 8pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back episodes of this series with a new name: MEGA SHREDDERS.
