We've actually had this problem in my apartment complex. There are at least three tenants here who are notorious for sifting through other tenants' tied plastic bags in the middle of the night. One night I brought my garbage downstairs, and one of the garbage-mongers, a guy, was there, opening up the tied garbage bags. He had a box with him, and he was putting someone else's garbage into his box. I don't know whether he was looking for financial documents, social security numbers, or whatever, but I think it's a good idea to get a cross-cut paper shredder. The paper shredder won't help with medicine bottle labels, but it's good to use it for anything else with your name, social security number, credit card number, bank account numbers, etc. There is also a mother-daughter "team" in my building that does this in the middle of the night. These two actually take other tenants' garbage bags into their apartment. I think they are absolutely disgusting. What I do now is this: If I throw out anything personal that I haven't thoroughly shredded, I take several scoops of DIRTY kitty litter and throw it on top of the garbage before I tie the garbage bag. I figure, if they are willing to plow through my cat's stinky excrement, then they can have my garbage, but they're going to have to "work" for it.
