a lot of shredders don't cope with real green waste as they can get blocked up. My small pro unit has different screens: one for chipping woody stems and another screen which is more open so allows for softer stuff such as leaves to be put thru.

It could also be done to either no time (easier to chuck on than shred) or lack of a shredder. But shredded waste should generally compost quicker too.
