BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — A machine made famous for its crunching capabilities finally has a name.
The shredder, viewed for hundreds of hours by people all over the world, is based in Brockport and housed by Sunnking, a leader in the industry of e-scrap Sunnking.
This local “celebrity” shredder gained his stardom thanks to “Stream the Shred.” Live, uninterrupted, 24-hour viewing of electronics being destroyed into hundreds of recyclable pieces of metal and retired technology.
Last month the company announced a contest to name the shredder and on Thursday the results were revealed.
Shreddie Van Halen was the top vote-getter in the online contest. Here’s a breakdown of the vote between the five finalists:
- 34% of votes: Shreddie Van Halen
- 24% of votes: Shreddy Krueger
- 23% of votes: Shreddy Munster
- 12% of votes: Sir Chomps-a-Lot
- 7% of votes: Slim Shreddy
SUNY Brockport student Jessica Lisk was the winner with her Shreddie Van Halen submission. She will be given a tour of the newly named shredder plus four tickets to Six Flags Darien Lake.
Overall, more than 200 names were submitted from the Rochester and Buffalo areas.
