The owner of a tax preparation business that closed three years ago accidentally discarded several boxes of sensitive records.  The records had been picked over before tossed, but sensitive information still ended up in a public dumpster.  A concerned citizen found them in a recycling bin in an old supermarket lot.  Names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and invoices were exposed.
