Protect your info, let RCMP shred it

Bring your documents to event this Saturday morning at Harris Road Park

  • Jun. 4, 2015 8:00 p.m.

Worried about a crook getting a copy of your credit card number out of the garbage and going on a spending spree?

Perhaps old income tax forms or bank statements are more your concern?

If you have lots of paperwork, documents and tax returns in your house that you’d like to dispose of safely, drop over to Harris Road Park, beside Heritage Hall, this Saturday morning between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

That’s where Ridge Meadows RCMP along with Iron Mountain Canada shredding will be taking all your documents and shredding them into illegible pieces.

“This is a great opportunity to act to safeguard your privacy and prevent becoming a victim of identity theft,” said Sgt. Brenda Gresiuk.

“Documents such as bills, letters, statements, and tax returns all contain pieces of valuable personal information. Criminals collect this information and use it to commit frauds.

“Everyone has a role to play in public safety and protecting yourself against identify theft is important. This is a great opportunity to minimize the chances by disposing of personal information properly.”
