Even FBI agents are not supposed to be allowed in your garbage (yeah, that stops them like it stops us...) until it actually leaves your property and hits the garbage truck. Then it become property of the city, county, whatever...

The point occurs when you willingly allow someone else (legally called an "agent") take possession of your property. In this case, it is the garbageperson picking up your trash on the corner where you WILLINGLY placed it for pickup. Until the transaction takes places to that agent, it is still your property.

Anyway most of the regular members on the board i'm sure already know this.. but for all the people who still dont know or haven't tried it.. it's a little technique I like to call online dumpster diving. (It's a lot cleaner)
Ok so the search engine google has spiders that crawl around the web cacheing files on their network. Now alot of times their programs cache some stuff they are not supposed to have. For example pdf files (ebook... read with Acrobat) are cached as well as html files and in some companies pdf files that were on their webserver are now linked in google.
Now in order to do your online diving you need to put into little phrases like "verizon pdf proprietary".... and you can substitute verizon for any big company that you want. The results I can say are very satisfying.
If you want to take it a little further you can substitute proprietary with confidental. Be wary though... dont take it too far. Happy online diving!!

I knew the computer store (my target) was closed on Sunday but they are located in a mini-strip mall with two other stores (a hardware store and a hair salon). I really didn't want to take the chance of being seen, since the dumpster is in back where the employees of all three stores take their smoke breaks. I called the other two stores to see what time they closed....no answer at either place. I drove by the building slowly to do a quick recon and confirmed the other two stores were closed. Yup! I was in luck. I drove in back, and checked the dumpster. It was pretty full, mainly of bags full of packing peanuts. There were some peices of an apparently dead monitor some ATA ribbon cables and a bunch of various power tool parts and some "regular" garbage. Not too much of value to me.
In short, even though I didn't come away anythign other than some hard drive cables, I learned some valuable info for my next trip: I know the other two stroes are closed on Sunday when the computer store is also closed, and I know that the dumpster is not emptied on the weekends. Having a little bit of inside info also helps too, as I know what kind of stuff is put into the dumpster so I know it's a good source for the kinds of things I'm lookign for. Targeting a place where you used to work might carry a certain amount of risk (in my case this computer store is a bit of a competitor), but the payoff potential and use of the inside info you posess can make it too tempting to pass up.
Maybe on my next trip back I'll decide to get a little dirtier and climb into the damn thing.
