In the throes of moving, it’s tempting to just take that pile of papers and dump it in the trash. We get it – you’re exhausted, you never think identity theft will happen to you and soooo… off to the dumpster your old credit card receipts go, right? WRONG!
In the decision California vs. Greenwood, they stated that the “expectation of privacy in trash left for collection in an area accessible to the public… is unreasonable.” This means, when you throw something in the trash, anyone who is willing to go through your trash or dumpster, legally can. So what can you do? Plenty!
