“Dumpster Diving” Law WI State Statute 895.505 When a new State of Wisconsin law required businesses to destroy clients' financial or medical records, Sheboygan County businesses turned to Special Operations Detective Agency. Called the "dumpster diving" law, the legislation was designed to protect Wisconsin residents from having their identities stolen by people rummaging through trash. To further insure privacy, SODA — a licensed security agency — assigns only licensed security officers to handle these sensitive documents. All officers are screened by the State and the FBI.
