Also put the trash at the end of the driveway, still your property, so it would be illegal for them to snoop.

Still won’t stop many dumpster divers.

I've got a Dumpster diver here that strikes every week, but he's looking for cans & bottle. 

Besides I shredd everything too.

Re: Caught someone digging in our trash!

A good reminder. I actually have a shredder in my bedroom lol. I’m not ashamed of it. I tend to open mail in my bedroom

Shredding is definitely a good idea, but one of my friends whose in FL takes it one step further, he burns any sensitive documents.

Re: Caught someone digging in our trash!

Where I used to live we could burn stuff, but not where I live now. Whe I used to have a wood stove I'd burn all paperwork, skipped the shredding part then.

No but at least it's illegal not that authorities will do any thing. But definately a shredder, a good one.
