    Default Dumpster Diving

    If it's at the curb then it's not stealing as it's actually not on

    your property. It's on city property at least here in MI. And most

    consider once it's in the dumpster it's no longer wanted. If it is

    actually stealing then the truck would be stealing it when it comes

    and empties the dumpster.



    The idea is to keep things out of the land fill, so I don't see why

    not take what you can use. Also the main issue with some places is

    that people make a mess, which is why they don't want people to take

    things. Altho some I'm sure are just selfish not nice people too.

    It's stealing unfortunately you're trying to justify it. The cans are mine, the bags I bought, the trash I bought, it's on my property (I live in IN). This theory would say if my kids leave theirbikes at the curb of my yard then someone could come by and take them. Your theory is then it's not stealing it's on the curb, city street. Ridiculous. The trashmen/women have my permission to pick it up. I'm not giving permission for someone to rummage through my stuff. I am clearly giving the city permission. Again I go back to the bike, was it stealing or not? Or even the trash cans itself. they're sitting out with trash in them, do you want someone taking them?





    How about this if people are concerned with landfils RECYCLE orFREECYCLE, bottom line is unless I"m giving someone permission to take something from my garbage, stay out. Robyn

    Not just the mess...the liability standpoint. Dumpsters are not at the curb, they are on the company's property. The trash company is not trespassing, because they are under contract with the business owner to remove their trash, so they have "permission" to come onto the property and empty said dumpsters. KP
