From the Dumpster Drive website:

Dumpster Drive is a file-sharing application that recycles digital files. Using dumpster diving as a model for recirculating unwanted objects, Dumpster Drive allows others to dig through files that you delete on your computer in a passive file-sharing network. Instead of simply erasing data from your computer, the software allows users to extend the lifecycle of their unwanted files and pass them on to others.

Currently Dumpester Drive only works on OSX, but the source is freely available on GitHub. Maybe a Linux version will soon come to light.
