Protect yourself against fraud and identity theft.
Haldimand OPP is reminding all residents that throwing any documents that contain any personal or financial information in the garbage or recycling leaves you vulnerable to fraud and identity theft.

Bring in personal and financial documents for “on site” shredding by Norfolk Disposal mobile trucks for a donation of $7.00 / box or by donation. All proceeds will remain in Haldimand and Norfolk and will be used to support Crime Stoppers.
