Owners of a mini-storage business discovered that Associated Surveyors had abandoned sensitive information.  The rent on the storage space had not been paid for over a year and Associated Surveyors and the items in the space were set to be auctioned off. The mini-storage owners decided to properly dispose of the documents in the unit when they found Social Security numbers, Social Security card applications, checks, bank account numbers, tax return forms, and copies of other documents with sensitive personal information.
