NY: Monroe County Clerk tossing personal, sensitive DMV customer information in the trash

WHEC has the story, brought to them by a consumer who observed employees just tossing records with personal information:

Mottshaw says he refuses to give his social security number out because his identity has been stolen before. When he was at the DMV in Henrietta he says he saw employees throw documents in the garbage.

So after hours, he came back and went through the dumpster behind the building.

On Thursday, he showed News10NBC the garbage he collected. The papers included renewal applications with names, addresses and social security numbers which we blacked out, the Homeland Security and Visa information of an exchange student at UofR, boat registration stickers and stacks of 10 day car inspection tags.
