Shred Confidential Documents THE RIGHT WAY.

Whether it is for home or office use, a shredder can help you securely dispose of your most sensitive information, be it on paper, CD, or cards.

A good shredder is critical as it cuts down on time wastage as well as repair costs. We have compiled a list of the best shredders in Singapore for 2020:


Factors to consider when purchasing a shredder.

PDPA Singapore has strict regulations especially when dealing with sensitive customers’ information or even your personal information. You also wouldn’t want your accounting information to leak out to others right?

Some factors to consider when purchasing a shredder would be:

Cross cut shredding

Normal strip cut shredding can easily be pieced back and may result in identity theft. Cross cut shredding ensures that the documents are destroyed beyond recognition and recovery is close to impossible.

P-3 Security and above

Security levels are classified from P-1 to P-7 with P-7 being the finest. A minimum of P-3 shredding is usually recommended. Recyclingdotcom has a very informative article and even has actual particle sizing chart.

3 Steps to Consider before Hiring a Document Shredding Company in Singapore

Regular document shredding and data destruction is critical for protecting confidential business information and sensitive customer data. PDPC has certain criteria when it comes to confidential data.

Secure chain of custody should be at the top of your list when looking for a reputable shredding service company in Singapore.

It is highly recommended to engage a third-party document shredding company in Singapore to improve efficiency as well as save precious time. There are many more things a professional shredding service can offer to you other than just ensuring documents are securely destroyed. These are some factors to consider:


  • How is the collection procedure?

Many companies or individuals will ask this question: Why should I pay to shred documents? Why not sell it to the “karang guni” man?

By just dropping the documents off in the recycling bin or simply selling it away, you face the risk of data breach as there are much more additional risks during transit and much more people handling it without security measures.

The most important things in data security is to reduce the number of touch-points. Having a definitive and secure chain of custody is crucial for any document shredding company. Staff must be well trained to handle and protect customers’ data. These factors will ensure that risk of data leak is eliminated.


  • How is the destruction process?

By simple shredding documents into thin strips, it will not ensure information on them cannot be obtained. Cross cutting into small particles will ensure that no one is able to recreate your documents.

Appropriate measures have to be taken during the procedure like storing documents in sealed serial numbered boxes or bags until they are ready to be shredded.

A certificate of destruction issued after service is also vital as it serves as a document proof that the documents are destroyed. Find out more about Arkiva’s document shredding procedure.



Shredded Paper


  • Will the shredding service company come at predetermined intervals to stay on top of shredding needs?

This is very important especially for companies that generate large quantity of documents or media.

By having a company that has automated schedule for collection, you can spend your precious time developing your business rather than having to worry about shredding the documents and having to make phone calls or send emails to schedule collections.

Having secure, lockable bins or consoles will also ensure that there will be no risk of internal data leak.

Why is Secure Disposal Service of Items with Company Logo Necessary in Singapore?

What does secure disposal service in Singapore mean?

Getting rid of items may be easy. But how can you ensure that no third party or anyone from the general public misuses it?


The items or products with branding / company logos have several characteristics, two of which stand out in the subject: usefulness and lifetime. One of the main assets a company has is its identity and brand; the same that is used in everything that represents him: from the pen in your reception to the staff t-shirts.


Many times these assets are victims of the misappropriation. Given its usefulness in the company as a means of internal and mainly external identification, their correct disposal is an issue to consider. This is a factor that could easily be overlooked, as the identity within the company is usually confirmed with the use of credentials or fingerprints, however; how could an end customer verify that such information is true?


There are already several ways to verify the identification, however; if your company does not ensure the destruction of the confidential or exclusive material of the company, it can be the victim of an impersonation just by having access to an item with company logo, shirt or credential that was wrongly discarded.



How items or products with branding / company logos should be securely disposed of?


Do you remember any movies in which, one of the characters manages to sneak inside the police station, hotel security or any other, just by wearing the shirt of that institution to commit fight or crime? Mission Impossible, Fast and Furious 5, Jason Bourne among others, is examples of a reality that is lived more frequently than we think.

So, it is necessary to have specialized tools that ensure that they cannot be rebuilt but can be recycled if the client wishes. That’s why at Arkiva we provide the services of removal of items or products with branding / company logos with proper disposal.

We provide the secure destruction of the items or products that need proper disposal. All of the above translates into prestige, safety, and care for your brand.


The secure disposal of these items creates an atmosphere of trust and prestige even within your company.
