A woman found thousands of applications for Women, infants, and Children (WIC) support in a dumpster.  Around 1,000 documents were originally reported in the dumpster.  Additional documents were discovered when a local news team joined the woman at the dumpster a few days later. The applications included copies of drivers licenses, Social Security numbers, medical information, and many other types of sensitive information.  An employee of the state agency said that the forms would normally be properly shredded, but were thrown out in a hurry without being checked.
