Identity Theft is a crime in which someone obtains and uses another person’s personal information in a way that involves fraud or deception. Often, a person’s personal information such as bank information or credit card information is obtained from people’s garbage or blue box recycle bags.
Do you have a box of personal papers that you would like to have shredded?
On Saturday September 6, 2014, residents & business owners are encouraged to bring their boxes of old tax records, bills, bank statements and other confidential documents to the Britannia parking lot and have these papers shredded and recycled onsite for you to witness.
This is an easy way to destroy personal papers quickly and avoid identity theft by preventing personal information from falling into the wrong hands.
Thank you to the Vancity Commercial Drive branch for sponsoring the Urban Impact recycle truck and to Britannia Community Centre for hosting the shredding site.
Every dollar donated helps keep your community safe. Suggested donation is $5 per file box. All donations go directly to the GWCPC.
