Viking Shred doesn’t outsource recycling to third parties. Instead, we shred your documents at your workplace, using one of our secure shredding trucks. The paper — finely shredded to the demanding Department of Defense standards onsite — is baled at our secure facility and sent directly to a paper mill. Eliminating third-party recyclers enables us to offer one of the strictest, most efficient chains of custody available in California’s secure shredding industry.

Viking Shred’s ongoing commitment to sustainability initiatives includes:

  • A fully modern truck fleet that meets all California low emission diesel vehicle standards
  • The use of biodegradable hydraulic oil in our shredders
  • State of the art plant air filtration systems, to minimize the emission of VOCs and other air pollutants
  • Committed goal of 100% diversion of waste away from landfills
  • Complete recycling of e-waste materials
  • Full support for our customers’ ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 objectives
