About Us

Secure. Sustainable.
Socially Responsible.

Providing convenient and affordable shredding and recycling services to residential and commercial customers.

Hello. Welcome to PULP SHRED.

Our vision is to provide a greener alternative for confidential document & data security, destruction, and recycling. 

The document shredding business has been around for a long time, but the on-site mobile (truck) shredding model is leading to a substantial carbon footprint, something PULP SHRED is committed to changing. 

Mobile shredding is neither efficient nor cost-effective – negative environmental footprint (noise, air, and dust pollution), issues around idling & rev-surging (fuel wastage, carbon emissions), data leakage (no baling of paper at site exposing to elements), and hazardous contamination & fire-hazard risks (metals, plastic, batteries). Besides parking violations, truck operations and maintenance, and licensing can all be costly.

Your privacy, secure processes, and tight chain of custody are foundational aspects of our business. We bring a new way of meeting customers’ privacy requirements without compromising the environment.

At PULP SHRED, we continuously focus our attention on how we can improve our greener vision and ethos. Our tag line “A Greener Alternative” is meant to suggest just that. To say one is green is finite and frankly not possible. Being environmentally friendly is a conscious choice and a continuous journey, not a destination. We believe in continuously improving and delivering the best possible experience to our customers while constantly seeking greener ways to run our operations and deliver our services.

Our business model is based on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) philosophy – secure services, greener processes, and social contributions. All three are an intrinsic part of our company DNA and value proposition.

We hope you will see value in our services and will give us the chance to partner with you. As a local business, this will help keep our dollars local and create & support Alberta jobs. 

Thank you for visiting our website and giving us the opportunity to win your business!

Sincerely & humbly,

Ankur Mahajan
Founder & CEO
