Dumpster Diver’s Dream

I was in the office over the weekend. Lined up in the cellar, I found trash cans full of paper intended for our secure document disposal vendor.
In all likelyhood these cans were not the contents from the supposedly secure boxes placed around the building. Facilities had announced a office cleanup week and put out trashcans to give people a chance to clear out all the old crap. What else are you going to be doing Christmas week anyway.
So while users likely didn’t have a expectation that these bins would be stored semi-securely, I still felt like it was a dumpster divers dream. Here’s a tip. When only one set of papers is ripped up before being put in the disposal, I assume that is much more interesting than all the neatly stapled powerpoint slide printouts.
