The proposed secret Agency would replace the existing garbage-collecting services and in addition to removing garbage it would also collect fingerprints from every item that allows that: bottles, milk boxes, magazines, etc.

The resulting database of fingerprints, even not tied to names and exact addresses could be used for:

- capturing wanted suspects by pointing out the general location of their residence.

- building comprehensive population migration statistics.

- locating kidnapped persons.

- fighting tax evasion (in joint operations with the MFA -- Money Fingerprinting Agency)

       Most identity theft is already from someone going through someone else's trash. I am a paranoid little breakfast, even though my personal wealth is modest at best- I own almost as much as I owe! Shread and Burn! (notmybone either)
